 A third fire started when the wind blew the flames into a nearby field, Schoolcraft said. Crockery Township firefighters were then called about 2:50 p.m. to assist with their brush truck. Less than a quarter acre burned, he said.

 Officials called for an ambulance to tend to the driver, Schoolcraft said. The man was not transported.

 Firefighters were on the scene for about two hours, Schoolcraft said.
