“The tractor was completely gutted in the fire.

“This incident was likely to have been caused by an electrical fault or a mechanical fault in the engine compartment.” 

Foam was used by the fire crews to help tackle the fire and the road was cleared again by 6.04pm.

North Wales Police were called to control and divert traffic away from the fire and nobody was injured during the incident.
