For the third time in five days, the Leonore Fire Department has been called to handle a field fire.

The latest call came in at 11:30 Monday morning along North 16th Road, south of Leonore. A mutual aid call for help was put out to Grand Ridge, Lostant, Tonica and Wenona Fire Departments.

On Saturday, about five acres burnt during a field fire while nearly 70 acres were scorched in a fire last Thursday.
