We were called out on a wheat field fire last night near Hillsdale and ended up fighting 2 wheat field fires, the other north of Carrier. The fire up west of Hillsdale was UNCUT WHEAT. The fire north of Carrier was   wheat stubble. Thank you to Lahoma and Kremlin Fire for the assistance you provided.
