Firefighters spent more than two hours tackling a fire in a field near Bridgnorth.
Crews were called to Netherton Lane in Highley just after lunchtime yesterday, after receiving reports that bales and stubble had caught fire in a field.
Two fire appliances including the Incident Support Unit were sent to the scene from Bridgnorth and Cleobury Mortimer.
Crews used a hose reel jet and rakes, shovels and mathooks to deal with the blaze, which affected approximately 120 x 120 metres.
Meanwhile on Saturday, a 300m stretch of embankment at Eardington, near Bridgnorth also caught fire.
