Field Catches Fire In Tonica

Posted by wlpo on November 11, 2010

A fire on the east end of Tonica claimed 10 to 15 acres of farm ground and a piece of farm equipment.

Six different fire departments responded yesterday afternoon around 1:30 for a hay bailer that caught fire off Ed Lambert Road, or County Highway 14.  The bailer eventually caught a hay field on fire and due to windy conditions, the fire crossed the road and set a cut corn field on fire.

Firefighters were on scene for nearly two hours.  No one was hurt.
