People driving on the A2 and other roads nearby were advised to move carefully due to the smoke coming from the incident, which may cause some issues with visibility.
Despite this, people took to the comments of Arnold's video to still express their skepticism of climate change.
One person wrote: "I wouldn't be surprised if it was climate change activists setting the fires to try to get publicity. If it is, I imagine the MSM will be only too happy to oblige."
"I find it pretty strange that considering how hot it was yesterday, and nothing happened, now suddenly it's marginally a tiny bit hotter, and there's all these fires breaking out the day we break our heat record. It's all a little fishy," another added.
A third wrote: "Yeah, how weird that 2 full days of excessive heat has led to these incidents. Why didn't they happen first thing yesterday morning?? Must be a conspiracy."
Others were just shocked to learn that these wildfires could occur in the country and wanted the global warming deniers to take this into consideration.
"Never thought I'd ever see something like this in the UK, wow," one wrote, while another added: "Can global warming deniers give an excuse to this, please."
Someone else wrote:" I wonder how many of those seeing it as they drive past will think twice next time before deciding to drive and heat things up just that little bit more."
