NT Staff

TONICA — A small all-terrain vehicle caught fire and ignited a blaze in a field in the Tonica fire district at about 4 p.m. Saturday.

Firefighters were dispatched to a field about ½ mile north of 2401 Road along Route 178 and found the ATV “completely involved in fire,” according to Rick Turri, Tonica Volunteer Fire Department public information officer.

The fire department quickly extinguished the fire that had extended to a harvested field and grass waterway.

Oglesby Fire Department provided assistance through the departments’ auto-aid agreement.

The Tonica Fire Department’s four pieces of equipment and 16 firefighters returned to their station within 30 minutes.
