Posted on 15 October 2010 by KWBG

BOXHOLM, Iowa—One of the bigger field fires of the season hit western Boone County Thursday afternoon. Sheriff Ron Fehr says the call came in about 2:00 in the afternoon about a large cornfield fire near Boxholm. Firefighters from Boxholm, Grand Junction and Ogden responded and Boone County Emergency Management and the Iowa State Patrol assisted deputies with traffic control. Fehr says farmers in the area used chisel plows to create fire break to stop the fire. He says an area, about a half mile long and a quarter mile wide was affected.
