Burned out tractor

This burned out tractor east of Flanagan caught fire when the spray boom attached to the tractor was raised and touched a power line above the tractor. The operator, Aaron Rients, noticed the tractor tires were on fire. He jumped out to see what was going on and noticed his dog was still in the cab. He retrieved the dog and only then did he receive a slight shock from the electricity that had engulfed the tractor. Mr. Rients is one lucky man. The photo was provided by Gene Oncken.
