Two fire crews were called to the Holkham estate yesterday evening (Monday) after farm machinery caught fire.
Appliances from Wells and Heacham attended at 8pm after a contractor reported the blaze.
A spokesman for the estate said the machine was a Merlot teleporter.
“It was owned by Jonathan Cole (Cole Agricultural Ltd) who, as a contractor for the farm, was moving straw on the estate,” she said.
“It was parked up by the driver and unattended at the time it self-ignited.
“Everyone is therefore fine. A cause is not known.”
Firefighters extinguished the fire using foam.
