A man suffered burns to his hands in a crane fire on the A47 at Guyhirn on Saturday.
At 2.30pm, two crews attended and used one hose reel to extinguish the fire, which was caused accidentally.
The crane fire was one of eight 999 calls tackled by Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service’s resilience crews on Saturday.
Since members of the Fire Brigades Union went on strike for seven hours from 10am until 5pm, fire engines were crewed by on-call firefighters, operational managers and senior staff from across the service.
Deputy Chief Fire Officer Chris Strickland said: “Once again our resilience arrangements have been successful and all 999 calls were responded to. Again I’d like to thank the public for being extra vigilant during today’s industrial action.”
