Lawnmower at Dutch Landing

Last night, the Pella Fire Department responded to a call at Dutchman’s Landing, where a riding lawnmower had reportedly caught fire. Upon arrival, the firefighters found a man and woman using water to try to extinguish the flames themselves. The firefighters quickly got the situation under control, and were able to prevent the fire from spreading. The lawn mower had reportedly been used for ten straight hours, which may have caused the machine to ignite.
