Because of the heat wave currently affecting Britain, fires have been seen breaking out. In response, brave farmers have stepped in to save the countryside as elsewhere homes are being consumed by the flames. In one particular case, an unidentified farmer driving a tractor trailer was seen jumping in to stop the fires.
On Friday, Sky News caught footage of the the harrowing fire and the farmers that took it on.
The driver then used what looks like a soil aerator to stop the fire almost immediately. The farmer driving the tractor still remains unidentified. A fire engine came to the location later and helped put the fire out.
A similar incident happened in June when a fire broke out in Kent, England. Another farmer named Bill Alexander cut down the crops in front of the fire to starve it of fuel and stopped it from consuming more.
The owner of the farmland, Andy Barr, thanked the farmer for his heroic actions.
Thankfully, there were no injuries after the fire.
Thankfully, these farmers jumped into action to save the rest of the crops. This is the kind of heroic quick thinking that we need more of in the world. Would you have done this to fight the fire even if you didn’t own the farm? Let us know your thoughts.
