SCOTTSVILLE — The Scottsville Fire Department responded with mutual aid from Rush, Clifton and Mumford for a large field fire. The fire was in a wheat field on the Krenzer farm located at Union Street and Smith Road.
It took fire companies about an hour to contain the 20 acre fire using four brush trucks and three ATV’s.
Firefighter Steve Bowman, from the Scottsville fire department, stated that the toughest part was obtaining water supply and dealing with the winds.
“Mutual aid was a key part in containing the fire,” said Bowman, pleased with the team effort.
