It was around 8PM tonight that members of the Port Hope Fire and Emergency Services were called to their station to respond to a reported farm equipment fire. It happened in a field adjacent to County Rd. 10 just south of the 7th Line in the Municipality of Port Hope.
First arriving crews discovered a farm tractor engulfed in flames. In its tracks left a portion where the tractor had processed also in flames. A quick response by Port Hope Fire and Emergency Services saved what remained of the field.
At this time it is believed no injuries were sustained during this incident. Crews remain on scene with one lane of traffic blocked as they continue to complete overhaul and clear any remaining hot spots.
