MULTIPLE fire crews have attended a blaze in the open in Halesworth.

Crews were called just before 4pm to the incident behind the Hemp Technology business property in Norwich Road.

A patch of ground measuring about six square metres was “well alight” at the scene.

A high wind caused the fire to spread to nearby trees and a hedgerow.

Appliances from Halesworth, Southwold, Bungay and the water carrier from Leiston attended.
