Field and brush fires keep local departments busy Wednesday

Posted by wlpo on April 9, 2014

It’s a beautiful day to be working outside just be careful if you start a fire. Fire departments all over Bureau and La Salle Counties have been called Wednesday morning and afternoon to a variety of brush and field fires.

Serena and Wallace Fire Departments were called to a cornfield on fire west of Serena. A controlled near Malden grew out of control Wednesday morning requiring Malden and Princeton firefighters to arrive.  Sheridan was also called out to help Newark fire.

Dry fields combined with low humidity and a breeze makes it easy for fires to spread.
