Hilger hay bales saved from fire

Harper Fire units were able to stop a field fire Saturday afternoon before it could get to approximately 30 hay bales on land farmed by the Hilger family about two miles north and a quarter mile west of Harper.

A tree row had caught on fire and spread to a mowed hay field and was burning towards the bales lined up at the edge of the field. About three acres burned before the fire was extinguished.

How the tree row fire started could not be determined.
