A blaze in a Cambridgeshire field, that later spread to a nearby vehicle, is believed to be deliberate, firefighters have said.

The incident happened on Thursday, August 23 at 7.40pm and the fire had started in three separate places.

A spokesman for Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue said: “One crew from Ely and one crew from Soham were called to a fire in the open on Quanea Drove, Stutney.

“Firefighters arrived to find three seats of fire in a field that had spread to a vehicle.

“Firefighters used a hose reel and beaters to extinguish the fire and prevent further spread. Both crews returned to their stations by 9pm.
