TROY, MO (KTVI) - The dry conditions may have played a part in a wheat field fire in Lincoln County.  Bommarito Automotive SkyFox was over the scorched field near Missouri State Highways "W" and "Y."  Firefighters from five different districts fought the brushfire for over an hour before putting it out.

Firefighters worked against the dry conditions, wind and heat to keep the fire from spreading to nearby homes.

The homes were spared, but the farmer says he lost his entire soybean crop.  It was uninsured.
