Cork fire brigade crews had a busy start to their week, attending two call-outs within the space of 24 hours - a tractor fire and an overturned slurry tanker.

The crew from Ballyvolane and Mallow attended the scene where a tractor and a slurry tanker had overturned.

The incident happened at Carrignavar near the GAA grounds.

The road was closed for some time and caused detours in the area.

Gardaí were aware of the incident and attended the scene.

Tractor fire

In a separate incident, the crew from Anglesea Street attended a tractor unit, which had a boom sprayer attached, that was on fire in the Model Farm Road area in Cork.

Smoke was visible in the area and caused poor visibility for motorists.
