Fire departments from around the region responded to Route 72 east of Meridian Road Friday afternoon for a large field fire.
Winds contributed to the fire's spread, leading Ogle County Sheriff's deputies to block off Route 72, just east of Stillman Valley.
A crew member from the Rockford Fire Department stated 30 local crews responded to get the fire under control.
