Learned many years ago that one five pounder dry extinguisher was NOT enough for a combine fire . I was on the opening round of splitting a field when all of a sudden the cylinder speed crank started to turn all by it's self and the next thing i smelled the smoke then saw the flames . Shoved the speed control full tilt to get it out of the field and out into a hay field . When i got out into the hay field i grabbed the extinguisher and started to TRY and get the fire out , by now i have belts burning and all five pounds did was slow it down. I was lucky that i was less then 500 feet from a home that just happened to have a garden hose that was hooked up . I drove the flaming combine close to the hose and started sprayen water on it in a fine mist . ome GOOD person driving past on the road saw the fire when it was setting in the hay field and called the fire dept. that was less then a mile and half away . One truck and four guys came and helped me get it out as the garden hose was slowing it down but not getting it out . A bearing had failed and started things cooking then the chaff got going then the belts . This combine was just pressure washed the day before i started on this farm .
