Surrey Heathland Fire

In the last few days, a fairly sizeable fire has swept across the Surrey heathland covered by the Chobham and Greyspot military Ranges. It's a fairly common occurance, but in the age of social networking, it was pretty easy to stay up to date with where it was and when. As such, I popped down the road earlier this afternoon when I heard it was bad enough and extensive enough to cause the closure of The Maultway.

As much of the fire is currently on military ranges the fire service can't enter to fight the fire directly due to the hazards of unexploded ordanance. As such they are forced to fight the fire from beyond the fences in many places. The fire seems relatively under control at this point, but as you'll see, it's created some dramatic landscapes.
