BEATRICE, Neb. (AP) - Investigators say an electrical glitch in the cab of a combine sparked a fire overnight that heavily damaged the machine shop of a John Deere dealership in Beatrice.

The Beatrice Daily Sun reports (https://bit.ly/29sK3xu ) that firefighters were first called to Landmark Implement around 9 p.m. Tuesday. Firefighters battled the flames until after midnight.

One firefighter was taken to a Beatrice hospital for treatment of heat exhaustion.

No one else was injured.

Officials did not have an estimate Wednesday of the damage, but expect it to be significant.
