Burnt out tractor at Hilton of Delnies

Yesterday the Scottish Fire Service published details of a fire that the Nairn crew attended at Hilton of Delnies. A tractor working in one of the carrot fields had caught fire. The web site stated: 

"Incident Commander, Mark Loynd said “crews worked exceptionally well in very difficult conditions to contain the fire and prevent fire spreading to neighbouring fields using a very limited water supply.”

Here is an image of the burnt out tractor taken this morning.
In a neighbouring field the work carries on and it is obvious from this image how important the carrot crop has become to the local agricultural economy. Larger images here on the Gurn flickr pages.
