Hudson field fire costs farmer 4 acres

Posted:
HUDSON (KWWL) -

A farm on West Shaulis Road in Hudson caught fire around 1 p.m. Saturday.

The Hudson Fire Department needed two trips to extinguish the flames. The owner of the corn field believes the fire was caused by exhaust from his combine along with the rain drought.

He said he took out about four acres of corn field around the burnt area for precautionary measures.
