MINOT, N.D. – Fire crews from Minot Rural, Burlington, and Surrey spent much of Saturday afternoon battling two separate combine fires on a farm in northeast Minot.
According to Minot Rural Fire Chief Rex Weltikol, the first fire took place shortly after 3:30 p.m. near 42nd Street and 46th Avenue NE.
That fire was quickly put out, though crews monitored beans burning inside the combine’s hopper.
Weltikol said the second combine fire occurred around 5:30 p.m. in the 3700 block of 30th Avenue NE, and was also quickly put out.
Burlington and Surrey departments offered aid due to Saturday’s strong winds.
No one was hurt in either incident.
