Scary footage has emerged from a large Fenland fire which wiped out buildings, fencing and trees.
Three crews from the Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service were called to the blaze which took place at around 3am this morning (July 8) in Pondersbridge.
Along with a water carrier, firefighters tackled the Ramsey Road fire which destroyed a number of outbuildings, wildlife and garden furniture.
Twitter user AF Photographic was at the scene and captured the dramatic footage.
Crews were at the scene for nearly three hours tackling the flames before heading back to their stations. They returned earlier this morning to check the scene.
