7:42am 24th June 2014
A bonfire which got out of control is being blamed for a major fire between Winterborne Abbas and Kingston Russell yesterday afternoon.
Four crews and a water carrier were needed to get the blaze under control which involved hay bales covered by tyres.
Huge plumes of smoke were seen are coming from the blaze - which caused problems to over head power cables.
Crews from Weymouth, Dorchester and Bridport spent 4 hours getting the fire under control.
