Forty hay bales caught fire in a field in Partridge Green yesterday (Wednesday July 30).

Emergency services were called to the three acre field off Jolesfield Road at about 2.20pm.

Firefighters created a fire break using beaters and allowed the hay bales to burn out under control.

The surrounding area and the perimeter of a neighbouring field were damped down using a hose reel.

Fire crews from Horsham left the scene just before 5pm.
