Firefighters navigate mud to extinguish tractor fire in Hebron

No injuries reported

HEBRON – There were no injuries Tuesday morning in Hebron after a tractor caught fire in a field.

Hebron-Alden-Greenwood Fire Protection District Chief Tom Linneman said firefighters were dispatched at 10:38 a.m. to a farm field along Greenwood Road north of Vanderkarr Road for a report of a tractor fire.

Because the tractor was 2,000 to 3,000 feet away from the nearest roadway and muddy terrain was in between, the district needed assistance from Spring Grove, Richmond and Woodstock fire departments. Each brought brush trucks to the scene.

First responders returned to quarters about noon Tuesday.

Firefighters were unable to determine the cause of the fire, but it remains under investigation by the district.
