At around 4:00 PM on Friday, Fire Rescue crews were dispatched out to a reported vehicle fire just East of Outram on Highway 18.
Deputy Fire Chief, Rick Davies, "Upon arrival we discovered there was a baler in the field which then, in turn lead a field fire."
Fire Rescue crews were quick to get in to knock it down with some help from local farmers with discs and hauling in water.
"The baler is a write off, the field fire is out and crews returned to station soon after."
