Crews from Somerton were mobilised to reports of a fire in the open at the above location.
On arrival crews discovered the railway embankment was alight and requested further crews for water and to prevent escalation. Crews from Yeovil, Martock Street and Glastonbury were sent.
They also requested two wildfire pumps, one from Somerton and one from Glastonbury. The water carrier from Yeovil was also sent.
Crews used 4 hose reel jets, compressed air foam, beaters and small tools to extinguish the fire.
Approximately 100metres of the embankment was destroyed by the fire.
