    Sorry for the off-topic, but what do you drive in the pictures? It looks similar to my Acura TSX but the moldings are different.

    it burnt up about 10 acres. it was started by a spark from the combine. maybe cut a peice of wire laying in the field or something.

    That kind of stuff happens every now and then. A few years ago a belt in a baler got over heated and caught the whole baler on fire. The farmer had just enough time to get the baler off the tractor and get away before it lit up the whole field.
