Disc Spark Starts Fire

August 22, 2013

Firefighters respond to field fire in Scandia Township.

A stray spark caused by discing on the Chuck Reidman farm 14 miles south of Valley City in Scandia Township caused a field fire about 2:26 p.m. Thursday, said Valley City Fire Chief Gary Retterath.
Retterath said Reidman was discing on his farm, when a spark ignited dead grass in a slough. "It wasn't very bad – we wet it down so it wouldn't get into another field," Retterath said.
The fire chief blamed the fire on especially dry conditions.
