News from the Illinois Valley

Gusty winds fan the flames for field fires

Posted by wlpo on September 27, 2016

It was a long afternoon for many firefighters in the Illinois Valley.

Problems started around 3 Monday afternoon for a field fire near Lostant. The field fire quickly spread to a couple of farm buildings and also involved a combine.

About two hours later, many of the same fire departments were called to a field fire near Moews Seed Company on Route 89 in Standard. This fire also involved a combine.

Nobody was hurt in either of the fires.
