Crews from Newport and East Cowes were called to the scene adjacent to the Osborne House overflow car park at around 14:30, with the assistance of Freshwater fire station’s water carrier also requested.
It is understood a power cut occurred in the area shortly before the fire was reported, with suggestions that downed power cables or a spark ignited the blaze, which has broke out in a recently harvested field.
The fire has been brought under control. There is no risk to the Osborne Estate.
