The Valley City Fire Department received three fire calls Tuesday â€“ all within 45 minutes.
The first call, which came in just after noon, was a corn field fire near the Peak exit off I-94. The fire was in a harvested field and spread slowly, according to Valley City Fire Chief Gary Retterath, but firefighters had a hard time maneuvering trucks in the field, which made fighting the fire difficult, he said.
While crews were busy at the Peak fire, they were called to a grass fire near Martin's Landing, north of Lake Ashtabula.
