    My Grandmother used to talk about that, as a kid in South Dakota. She was born in 1901. The trains would spark fires next to the tracks, and that would threaten the crops. That was about all they could do back then.

We all thought it was fun, can you imagine what would happen in today's world if the school asked the kids to go to put out a fire?.. times have changed..

    Naw, not Carl's Kubota. Only his JD lawnmower could make it up the hill in the background.

    There was a man here in Louisiana that was burned to death a few years back trying to put out a grass fire with his riding mower.
