Posted: Updated:
BELGRADE -

Central Valley Fire District quickly contained a wildland fire on Nelson Road in Belgrade today.

The fire started at about 1:15 p.m. when a spark from a vehicle's catalytic converter ignited wheat stubble.

The first engines on scene protected structures that were in the fire's path. Additional units attacked the wheat stubble fire while the farmer cut a fire line with a tractor/disk. The fire was controlled in 40 minutes after burning approximately 30 acres. No grain or property of value was lost and no injuries were reported.
