A Thursday afternoon fire caused extensive damage to a Shelby County cornfield. Firefighters and equipment from at least seven departments responded around 4 p.m. to the field at McCloskey School and Knoop-Johnston roads, according to published reports. The blaze destroyed some 50 acres and resulted in an estimated $50,000 damage. Windy conditions hampered efforts to extinguish the dry, standing corn, Sidney fire officials said. Witnesses said smoke was visible from Anna about 14 miles north of the scene. (PHOTOS | BECKY SMITH AND LIBBY THOMPSON)
