Crews were called out to a fire at the Morrisons car park in Bulwell. The incident was reported to Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service at 10.25am on Wednesday, July 20.
It's understood that heat from a van exhaust spread to shrubbery and trees, causing a 'small open fire'. Crews from London Road Fire Station attended the fire, using two hose reel jets to put out the fire.
Pictures from the scene show a fire engine parked in front of the hedge, with workers on hand to extinguish the fire. Smoke can be seen rising from the bush while it is ablaze.
