A fire south of Luxemburg late Wednesday afternoon damaged a farm combine and required two Kewaunee County fire departments to extinguish the blaze. The farm machinery was far in a cornfield between Luxemburg Road and Valley Road about three miles south of Luxemburg when it was engulfed in flames, according to Fire Chief Lew DeChateau. He says the fire spread into the corn field and required assistance from the Kewaunee Fire Department.
No injuries were reported and the cause of the fire is not known at this time. The combine is probably a complete loss, according to DeChateau. He says more details will be made available later this week.
