Incredible Footage of Farmer Stopping A Forest Fire

by onApril 2, 2016
 

This Colorado farmer had to put himself in the danger zone after lightning struck and ignited his and neighboring fields. Most residents sat and watched as their income burned up in flames, but farmer Eric Howard risked it all. This amazing footage shows him driving a tractor and plow just meters from the flames in order to turn up the dirt, preventing the fire from proceeding. You can see just how fast the fire is moving as it catches up to the plowed strip of field. Incredibly he makes it out unscathed and ends up saving his and 30 more acres of crop from going up in flames.
