FIREFIGHTERS are today continuing to tackle a grass fire which has been ongoing for two days.

Teams of firefighters from across the area have remained at the scene throughout the blaze, which has been made worse by the very dry ground.

A spokeswoman at the golf club said the fire was near the 15th hole but is under control. The course has remained open.
