A large field fire causes a car crash

Jun 25, 2013 -- 10:09am

Scott County Fire Chief Scott Perrien and his team had their work cut out for them near Vanduser! A large field fire Monday burned over 30 acres of wheat and caused a car crash on Highway Z. Perrien says the field, a ditch, tree line and a new combine were all lost. Smoke caused zero visibility and is thought to be the cause of a collision between a tractor trailer and a car. No injuries were reported. Today is forecasted to be windy so officials are asking for extreme care or no burning of fields.
