St. Anthony firefighters respond to combine fireOctober 9, 2018
From Local Sources
ST. ANTHONY — Units of the St. Anthony Volunteer Fire Department responded to the report of a combine on fire Monday evening northeast of St. Anthony.
The 7:21 p.m. callout sent firefighters to a field in the vicinicty of County Road 400S east of Santine Road where a Gutgsell Farms combine was harvesting beans, according to Fire Chief Scott Uebelhor.
Uebelhor said a bearing in the John Deere overheated causing product in the combine’s hopper to ignite.
Firefighters extinguished the fire, moved the machine closer to a road to empty the hopper, then washed out the space.
Uebelhor said there was minimal damage to the equipment.
Four trucks and 20 firefighters were on the scene for an hour.
