Burning trash sets field on fire

Posted by wlpo on October 18, 2015

    For the second time in 4 days, Leonore Fire Department has extinguished a field fire. Thankfully, the acreage affected Sunday wasn’t as large as Thurday’s 70 acres. Leonore Fire Chief Don Miller said a resident on Spring Lake Road, just outside Streator, was burning trash around Noon Sunday.

    Flames jumped over into a field and burned about 5 acres.before firemen could put it out. Brush trucks from Leonore, Reading, Cornell and Long Point were on the scene about 1 hour.
