Christopher Aune | The Herald-Tribune
Several area fire departments responded to an out-of-control wheat field fire June 28 near South Pocket Road about three-quarters of a mile south of State Road 46. The field was partially harvested, but the ripe grain still standing flared up at times. Sparks were carried on the wind to start many spot fires across the field, causing Batesville Fire & Rescue to call for backup from New Point, Osgood and Morris. No structures were on fire, though a house near the back of the field was in danger. Check back for more details as they come in.
