Electrical problems sent Kinde Area Fire Department personnel to a field in Meade Township for a combine fire. Fire Chief Adam Zimmerman told us the combine was in a field on Crown Road, near Lackie Road. Its believed the fire started in the battery box of the combine owned by Errer Farms. Firemen initially had trouble reaching the fire in the field, and used fire extinguishers to knock it down before they could get a truck back into the wet field. Zimmerman said the combine will likely need to be towed from the field to get the electrical system repaired. Firemen were called out at 10:26 Saturday night and were on the scene for about 90 minutes.
