Members of the Mason City Fire Department work from the shoulder of Highway 18 to douse a hillside as a fire burns out of control on Friday.

High winds fanned the flames across an expansive stretch of field, and led to several hot spots to reignite. Firefighters worked from the hilltop along the shoulder of the highway as additional trucks fought the blaze from below.
