Fire in the field

Wadsworth firefighters control hot spots around the perimeter of a fire in a straw field on Rawiga Road in Guilford Township Monday afternoon as farmer Boyd Acker continues to work in the distance. The Fire apparently started when Acker hit a rock with his tractor, sparking a blaze that torched between three and four acres, said Seville/Guilford Fire Chief Jerry Winkler, who was in charge of the scene. Winkler said the area’s drought contributed to the fire’s ignition. Sterling firefighters also responded to the call.
