FIREFIGHTERS had to use extra water from the River Arrow to tackle a large tree on fire in Studley.

Crews were called to deal with the blaze, which was near to crops, next to Priory Court at around 7pm on Wednesday,

It took two hours to put out the fire.

Firefighters had to call for back up from another fire engine to help bring the blaze under control and stop it spreading. They also had to use extra water from the Arrow.

A spokesman from Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service said: “Firefighters needed to supplement their water supply from a nearby river. They prevented the fire from spreading to the crops and spent two hours bringing the fire under control.”

The cause of the fire has not yet been reported.
