Cooper County Fire Captain Nathan Brandes, left, and Lieutenant Jeff Jackson, top right, stand in the grain bin of a combine and work with firefighter David Schmidt to put out the fire in the bin on Monday, Oct. 24, 2022, in Wooldridge, Mo. A fire that started in this combine on Saturday burned over 3,000 acres of land. The fire razed 23 buildings, or approximately half of Wooldridge, a small village that sits along the Missouri River. “We have smaller natural cover fires, but normally we don’t have to deal with sustained winds like this,” Brandes said. He said they would probably have another few days working in Wooldridge if the wind did not calm down.
