Thirteen fire fighters assisted in putting out the fire. According to the fire brigade, the likely cause of the fire was a spark in the header of the combine harvester.

A spark from the combine caused the fire

– The fire spread very quickly. A total of 90 hectares burned. There were 13 fire brigades on site, but we also had a firefighting plane at our disposal, which helped a lot in the firefighting operation. No one was hurt – Arkadiusz Kaniak, the press officer of the Lubuskie fire brigade, told us.

According to Kaniak, the cause of the fire turned out to be a spark that was created in the header, i.e. the working part of the combine – it is responsible for cutting the grain and moving it inside the machine.

According to the firefighter’s account, the harvester operator noticed the flame, dropped the header and drove the harvester to a safe place, and then attempted to extinguish it. This, however, did not help and the fire spread to the grain. The heder was also completely burnt.
