Good mornin' everyone. We had a close call yesterday at the wheat field we were harvesting. The neighbor field caught on fire from his combine and the wind blew it across towards our field in a flash. We were able to get a tractor and ddisc to make a fire line strip around the perimeter before it got to our field. I came within 10 feet of gettin' our uncut wheat. Most of the fire was in stubble. Fire department came out but the pump motor on the water tank wouldn't start, so it was a quite a hairy half hour or so. All ok at the end, thank God.

Glad everything worked out okay for ya. Our neighbors field caught fire two summers ago. It got dangerously close to our home. Never want to go throught that again.
