Farming combine catches fire in Clearfield County


Lawrence Township, PA – A farming combine caught fire in Clearfield County last night.

Fire crews were called out to Lawrence Township near Clearfield on Thursday just after 7 p.m.

The tricky part about this fire call was that the combine was several hundred yards into a field, which was inaccessible to fire engines.

Mutual aid brush units were called to the scene and quickly extinguished the farm equipment.

Thanks to all of our fire crews, and a special thanks to Rescue Hose and Ladder for alerting us of the story and capturing the fire in photos.
