Department responds to skid loader fireMay 23, 2019
From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — Units of the Huntingburg Volunteer Fire Department responded to the report of a skid loader fire at a farm northeast of the city early Wednesday afternoon.
The 12:20 p.m. callout sent the department to Neuhoff Farms LLC, 3201 S. 130W.
Fire Chief Scott Patberg said neighbors at Messmer Farms spotted the fire, reported it and used an extinguisher on the New Holland skid loader. The neighbors also moved some tractors out of the open-front barn where the skid loader was located.
Patberg and department fire investigator John C. Smith said the use of the extinguisher likely slowed the fire but the skid loader was a total loss.
There were no injuries.
Patberg and Smith said an electrical problem was the likely cause of the fire.
Three trucks and 12 firefighters were on the scene for about 45 minutes.
