Field fire west of Urbana 10/7

Could see smoke from my house and with the wind I was really worried if it was a fire how quickly it could get out of control and sread..harvest time and all.
Sure enough it was a field fire. The combine was still moving around so it appeared to be only the field. Some farmers were watching it and I stopped to talk to them. They said it looked a lot better and it was just about out.
