5 PM Live Urbana Field Fire
URBANA--Almost three acres of farm land owned by the University of Illinois caught fire on Friday afternoon in Urbana.
Multiple fire departments, and even some farmers, battled the flames that started around 3:00 P.M. at Race Street and Curtis Road.
Urbana Fire Chief, Mike Dilley says, he thinks sparks from a running piece of farm equipment ignited the flames. And adds the dry field grass made the fire quickly spread.
