Man Suffers Burns When Field Catches Fire

An elderly man working alone in his field has suffered burns on his arms, legs, and face after a fire broke out last Thursday. The 80-year-old farmer was in his tractor cutting cornstalks at the time.

A neighboring farmer saw smoke coming from the field and immediately phoned 911. He says he had a fire break out in his field that morning as well. The man was taken to the Humboldt County Memorial Hospital and then flown by Mercy One helicopter to the University of Iowa’s burn unit.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation. More than eight fires were reported that day in Humboldt County and dozens more across northern Iowa after 50mph wind gusts swept through the region.
