Amazing Farmer Battles a Wildfire with a Tractor!

amazing farmer risks life putting out field fire

With dry weather conditions comes dry croplands, when this grass fire started to spread out of control…

This amazing farmer took it on with his tractor!  Eric Howard of Colorado, fired up his John Deere tractor to head to the rescue.  A local thunderstorm had brought heavy lighting to an  area near Brighton, Colorado.  Luckily, he was able to save over half of his field before the fire was able to decimate it completely.  I was very surprised to see how close he was getting to the flames, as hydraulic parts can fail under too much heat/pressure.
