This article is a direct street report from our correspondent and has not been edited by the
1st Responder newsroom.
Firefighters find tractor on fire upon arrival
Bryan County Emergency Service (BCES) was dispatched and responded to a logging equipment fire.
Upon arrival, the firefighters found a tractor used for logging engulfed in flames. The equipment was not near any structures and was near the dirt road where it had been cutting trees.
The operator of the equipment reported smoke coming from the engine area and, upon investigating, found the unit to be on fire. He attempted to put the fire out with several fire extinguishers, but was able to escape without injury.
The cause of the fire is not known at this time, nor is the loss of the equipment. No injuries were reported.
It took just over 30 minutes of the department being on the scene to extinguish the fire.
