Just after noon on Wednesday, Edgerton Fire Department and North Western Electric Cooperative personnel aided a farmer on County Road E.75, east of County Road 5, in Edgerton, to remove his tractor’s sprayer equipment from electrical infrastructure on the edge of the field. The lines were temporarily shut down to perform the procedure and no transport for any injury was conducted. The situation was handled in under 30 minutes.
