FIREFIGHTERS tackled a blaze at a building site in Welford.
They spent an hour dealing with the fire at the ten-house development at Milcote Road early on Thursday evening.
Workman had left the site at the end of the day when the fire broke out. The cause has not yet been reported.
Ward councillor Peter Barnes feared it could have been much worse with a large hay field neighbouring the site.
Warwickshire Fire & Rescue Service has dealt with a number of fires in open areas during the heatwave, and has urged people
to be extra careful.
