Just before 1:30 pm on Sunday October 13th, 2019, a John Deere combine caught fire as the farmers worked to get a quarter of standing canola off of a field approximately 1-1/2 miles east of the Village of White Fox, SK in the RM of Torch River.
The operator was alerted to the smoke in time to safely get out of the cab but the fire flared up and the combine was fully engulfed within minutes.
Nipawin Fire Department and Nipawin RCMP responded. Cause of the fire has not been confirmed.
