PINE PLAINS – Gregg Pulver, Chairman of the Dutchess County Legislature, and one of the county’s last-remaining farmers is praising first responders after a Monday fire at his farm. The blaze destroyed a 2005 International Harvester combine worth $100,000.
As the firefighters were getting dispatched, a New York State Trooper arrived, followed by the fire department and Dutchess County Deputy Sheriff Schultz. Everyone on the scene went to work using foam to fight the fire and prevent a brush fire. It took about half an hour to put the fire out.”
