A FIRE that destroyed around 50 bales of wheat is believed to have been started deliberately.
Six pumps fought for hours to put out the flames, which spread to cover a 25 acre site, off Lynwood Drive, Carlton, Barnsley, from around 6pm on Friday.
Crews continued to attend on Saturday morning as the field was still ‘smouldering’.
An investigation is underway.
A fire spokesman said today: “It is believed the cause of the fire was deliberate.”
