  • Firefighters responded Thursday afternoon to a corn stubble fire near K Road south of Dunbar.
    Dean Neels was combining the corn when he noticed a little smoke behind him. By the time he turned the combine around, the fire had grown. Neels called the fire department and drove the combine out of the fire's way.
    The fire burned about half of the 40 acre field, but the wind pushed the fire away from the section and towards K Road.
    Neels credited neighboring farmers Don Schroeder and Pete Kreifels for quickly bringing tractors and discs to contain the fire.
    Firefighters from Dunbar, Talmage and Nebraska City responded.
