David Hilgenkamp pauses from raking to watch Will Rhea use a disc to control a smoldering field owned by James Hovendick along County Road 24, south of Orum, early Monday evening. Blair and Kennard volunteer fire and rescue departments and the Washington County Sheriff's Office responded to the fire, which was quickly contained.
