Fire Closes A350 Near Semley

The A350 was closed for a short time at Semley Common at around 1pm yesterday lunchtime, near to Langford Car spares.

Crew from Shaftesbury and a water carrier from Yeovil were sent out to tackle a fire in the engine compartment of a JCB. It was quickly extinguished using one hose reel jet, before being recovered by the farmer.
