Fire Control received over a dozen calls to a camper van on fire.
One appliance each from Glastonbury and Wells attended.
On arrival the campervan fire had spread to adjacent hedgerow and fencing.
As a gas cylinder was identified firefighters withdrew a safe distance to fight the fire.
As a precaution local residents were asked to move to the rear of the property.
Firefighters wore 4 breathing apparatus and used 2 ground monitor jets and foam to extinguish the fire. A thermal imaging camera was used to check the cylinder temperature and for hotspots.
The cause of the fire was recorded as deliberate, police officers were on scene investigating.
