Kentucky Crews Battle Field Fire

Firefighters in Glendale, Kentucky responded to a 100-acre cornfield fire on the afternoon of Sept. 20.

Firefighters from Sonora, Elizabethtown, Valley Creek, White Mills, Stephensburg, Upton and Central Hardin -- as well as the Division of Forestry -- battled the blaze.

The fire was under control within three hours.

One firefighter was transported to Hardin Memorial Hospital by Hardin County EMS with injuries sustained while fighting the fire.

The American Red Cross provided food and drinks for the fire crews.

Drought conditions and atmospheric heating caused by the fire spawned an incredible "dust devil" that was several hundred feet high.
