The Humboldt fire department responded along with Woodson County Rural and Allen County Rural fire department Wednesday, March 12. The fire started at the 800 mile of Missouri Rd. in Allen County. Dispatchers told Allen County rural and County Sheriff Deputy’s that a house was close to the field was on fire. A woman was seen at her home, deputy’s soon realized she went back into her residence to get her pets because she thought her house was on fire. Allen County EMS responded and treated the woman for smoke inhalation. Firefighters soon had control of the fire but the house suffered minor smoke damage.

“The fire was started due to a possible controlled burn that had gotten out of hand,” Jarod Tingley, Allen County Deputy Sheriff said. “We were also never aware of the fire due to the owners not calling the sheriff’s office or Allen County 911 Dispatch Center”.

The fire claimed three miles of farm land and many oil pumps in the process. Volunteers were out a total of three hours putting out the fires.
