Three young men were arrested after a 50-hectare wild fire torn on Friday at Ilkley Moor in West Yorkshire.

And up to 70 firefighters erupted a major fire that broke out yesterday near a windmill park in Moray, Scotland, that this lunch break was turned off.

Witnesses say the Uppermill glow lasted about an hour and burned before it was brought under control by firefighters.

A Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson said there were six fire trucks on site, but no cause has yet been established.

It was treated separately to burn fires at Diggle, Denshaw and Delph near Saddleworth, Marsden Moor in West Yorkshire and Tintwistle in Derbyshire.

Engineer Craig Hannah, 50, living in the nearby village of Greenfield, snarled photos of a wall of fire that was about 50 meters away from nearby houses.

The father of two was on his way home from a meal with his wife when he saw the raging glow that grabbed the hillside above Uppermill.

He said: & It was immediately the village of Uppermill, part of the houses was 50 meters away.

& # 39; Initially, I was having a meal on the other side of the hill with my wife.

& # 39; When we walked down the road in the car, the side of the hill was just a wall of fire. I had my camera gear in the car all day walking.

& # 39; The fire burned very quickly from the bottom before spreading out. All hills were red in color.

& # 39; There were many people in the village who flew out of cafes to watch it because of the time, it was around 9 p.m.

& # 39; It was a big fire to be so close to properties. It was an impressive fire and burned for about an hour, but was quickly turned off by the fire department.

& # 39; You have a lot of dead grass at this time of year, it is just like a tinder box. & # 39;

Witnessing the fire in Blaenau Ffestiniog, Chris McPhail said: “When I rode up, I saw the

glow and a load of smoke. It just looked like a volcano. & # 39;

People were urged to avoid the Blaenau Ffestiniog area when firefighters fought the flames this morning

The Uppermill eruption was one of three fires that broke out in the area in 24 hours.

Emergency services were present at a serious fire on Marsden Moor, which started on Sunday evening at the Gate of Easter.

There are ten water pumps, a helicopter and a specialized high-volume pump in use, which bring water from nearby reservoirs to the fire.

Trained National Trust Rangers and volunteers are also currently helping to block flames with specialized equipment.

It is likely that a BBQ started the eruption, which now covers an estimated more than 15sq km of heathland.

Crews, staff and volunteers stay on site on Tuesday and will continue their efforts to control the fire today, in continuous hot, dry weather.

Marsden Moor is a special place for highland birds, including merlin, that nest on the ground.

The greatest loss of wildlife is probably the nesting of birds, such as curlews, and mountain hare living in this part of the heath.

A spokesperson for the National Trust today (Tues) said: & We are devastated to see the destruction caused.

& # 39; Please help us protect the moors and wildlife by calling the fire department immediately if you see any signs of fire.

& # 39; We need the help of our visitors to avoid the risk of fire in the countryside we are caring for, especially if we have longer periods of dry weather or are dry. & # 39;

In North Wales, dozens of families had to flee their homes after a & # 39; volcanic & # 39; fire broke out on a mountainside.

Witnesses say that the burning gorse and the bushes looked like molten lava leaking from the hills above a Welsh village.

More than 30 firefighters were called upon to tackle the fire over the historic mining town of Blaenau Ffestiniog in North Wales.

Families were evacuated this morning after midnight and sought shelter in a local café that was opened especially for them.

Eyewitness Chris McPhail said: & When I drove up, I could see the glow and a load of smoke. It just looked like a volcano. & # 39;

Neighbor Laura Raymond said she was awakened at three o'clock at night by firefighters who opened burns near her house.

She said: & # 39; The hill was literally glowing from behind. & # 39;

She said the fire was still burning on an old slate quarry overlooking the city known as Black Rock.

She said: & # 39; Black Rock is like a huge giant lump of coal, with glowing embers.

& # 39; We took good care of it and the crews did a great job. We are just so grateful because the crews have led it away from the houses. & # 39;

Jackie Brunger said: “It was just glowing orange and it was absolutely frightening – I've never seen anything like it. We were told that we had to leave as soon as possible, so we took our car and went to the cafe. & # 39;

Jackie was one of those who took shelter in café DeNiros after owner Sue Roberts specifically opened it at 2 am to serve coffee and bacon sandwiches.

Sue also helped feed the emergency services – while police officers closed roads in the city and firefighters arrived from six stations to fight the fire.

Sue said: & # 39; It was a bit busy. It looked pretty spectacular when you think about it. & # 39;
