Middlesex Centre firefighters doused a field fire before it caused any serious damage to a farm north of London Tuesday.

“The winds were in our favour. If the winds had shifted today it may have been a very different story,” Middlesex Centre district fire Chief Carlin Riley said.

A hectare-sized field was scorched by the fire. A barn close to the field may have had fuel in it, according to Riley.

Seven trucks from the Bryanston, Ilderton and Arva fire stations attended the fire on 14 Mile Rd. between Adelaide Street and Highbury Avenue as a precautionary measure, Riley said.

Riley said the cause of the fire was unknown, though it was likely sparked from the engine of a vehicle used while combine harvesting, which the land owner had been doing on the property before the fire broke out just after 2 p.m. The fire was put out within a half-hour.
