    At least he is shooting the sparks and embers back towards what has already burnt.

    That's hardly what I would call a brush fire though.

    Is it me or is there something intuitively wrong about driving over a continuous flame like that?

    I don't know if I'd do that. I kinda like my tractor more than that.

    Before trying to do this it is best to call 911 and send out the fire department. I had the same problem and was glad when they showed up with a brush truck. No sense in burning down the neigborhood. Hopefully mine will be a once in a lifetime thing.

    Heard the tale that a person could put out a wheat field fire with his combine by combining the burning crop. Was visiting a custom harvester when he had a Bering go out and the heat started a stubble fire. We radioed him and instead of getting out his extinguisher he turned around, dropped his header to the ground, and combined it. Combines use a lot of air to separate grain from the chaff so what came out the back was an inferno. Burned nearly a half section of wheat that was still standing in the field. Knowing Melvin, he probably charged the customer for cutting it all and let the farmer fight it out with his insurance. It did burn off one belt on the combine.
