Waterman Capt. Matt Speerly (left) talks to Dennis Bell, the manager of the Afton Forest Preserve, who lives on site at 13998 Crego Rd between in DeKalb close to Waterman, after the John Deere tractor overheated and started on fire just before noon on Thursday, June 18, 2015. Bell called the fire department after he noticed the smoke from the shed. Fire departments from Waterman, DeKalb, Cortland, Shabbona, Hinckley, and the DeKalb County Sheriff responded to the scene with visable smoke pouring out of the shed. Waterman Fire Chief Dave Lave said that water from heavy rains earlier in the week, made it difficult to maneuver the fire apparatus along the gravel roads of the forest preserve.
