An incredible moment when a farmer desperately slows down a ferocious wildfire to save his neighbor’s house
HERO farmers saved their neighbors’ homes from the fierce wildfire by cultivating crops fearlessly around the flames.
When the firefighters rushed to the scene, the peasant Bill Alexander “quickly intervened” and tackled hell on his own.
In the middle of Saturday afternoon, a large crop flame broke out in a field near Maidstone, Kent.
The wildfire spread rapidly to about 20 acres, allowing the flames to be seen miles away.
When the wind blew, Inferno moved home at a blazing speed before his brave neighbor Bill acted in a hurry.
The footage showed the farmer incredibly using a tractor to cut through the path of fire and ride just a few meters away from the flames.
The video was captured by farm owner Andy Barr. Andy Barr praised his “good neighbor” for his fearless and courageous actions.
He writes: “Tell everyone to be careful what they do along the roads and paths where 20ha of spring barley is burning.
“This photo from my son was when the wind headed for my brother’s house. Fortunately, TCAgri’s Bill Alexander and Johnny & Erie saved the day.”
The wildfire was furious for 90 minutes before it was extinguished, but thankfully all the locals escaped safely.
A spokesman for the fire department said:
“The crew worked hard to control a fire covering about 8 hectares, which is about 20 acres.
“The fire was extinguished and extinguished. Firefighters safely escorted nearby people. No injuries reported.”
