Tractor fire almost sets building ablaze

Fire crews rushed to the scene of a tractor fire close to a building on Traders Cove Road off Westside Road around 5 p.m. on Tuesday. 

The tractor was destroyed by the fire, but crews were able to contain the spread to other buildings.

Six fire trucks attended the blaze.

There was minimal damage to the structure beside the tractor while the tractor itself is now a burnt ball of metal.

No injuries were reported and the current cause of the fire is unknown.
