Crews were called out to a blaze on Race Plain Road late last night (Monday 15th April).

Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue say they were alerted to the fire at around 11.30pm.

We're told it involved some flytipped rubbish.

A crew from Wilton went along to the scene along with an off road vehicle that's based at Fordingbridge.

The fire measured 10 metres by 5 metres, with firefighters dampening down after putting out the flames.

They also used hay drags to make sure the embers didn't reignite.
