Thought you guys would find these interesting. Our summer was dry like a lot of people's, and it proved to much for this Deere. We were called in for a grass fire to find this in the middle of the field. Luckily no one was hurt!

That is always a sad situation to see a tractor basically melted to the ground no matter what flavor the tractor may be. That had to be an extremely hot fire no doubt.

I was amazed by the amount of plastic. Really wasn't much left. It was hot enough to melt aluminum castings like valve cover and turbo housing. Worst part about the fire was that it was windy and we raced to cut it off before it got to a house at the end of the field.

I know it looks bad but we saved the weights and tool box! Reminds me of the volunteer rural FD I belonged to when I was a youngster in Indiana growing up. Our motto was " We haven't lost a foundation yet ". These guys never get the reconition for dropping everything and risking their lives to save somebody's life and belongings. Hats off to the volunteer FD's everywhere!
