KENNETT, Mo. -- A combine and a truck collided near Kennett Thursday night, igniting a fire inside the combine.

The Kennett Fire Department received a call at 7:10 p.m. that a tractor had run over a pick-up truck and was on fire on County Road 553. The driver of the pick-up truck, Mike Faught, and the operator of the combine both escaped the incident unharmed, according to officials. The Kennett Fire Department discovered that the rupturing of a hydraulic line caused the fire in the tractor. Officials remained on the scene until a wrecker arrived.
