Cottenham Fire

Cottenham Fire
Originally uploaded by DerekL.

On my way home from work tonight I followed a plume of smoke in the sky down a country lane in Cottenham, and there was a field of wheat ablaze. I wonder if farmers can get insurance for this kind of thing?

The fire brigade arrived to damp it down before it reached the houses on Cottenham High Street.

In a fit of multimedia madness I also put a video on YouTube. The noise you can hear is actually the roaring and crackling of the flames.
