Hot and dry: Fires spark across region
The Gladstone Fire Department put out two field fires about 10 miles south of Gladstone on Wednesday, Fire Chief Joe Wanner said.
Both fires were caused by sparks created by rocks hitting haying equipment, he said.
"It was Mother Nature and machines starting to clash," Wanner said.
The fires were unrelated, he said.
