BRUCE, S.D.–A controlled burn jumped its containment lines and led to extensive damage to a piece of equipment Wednesday.
The fire between Bruce and Estelline at 464th Avenue and 199th Street was in a field with corn stubble.
Once it left its containment, a neighbor attempted to contain the fire with a Caterpillar dozer, which also caught fire.
The Bruce Fire Department responded and were able to get the fire out.
Damage to the dozer is estimated at $100,000.
