Cane Fields Up in Smoke; Farm Tries to Salvage What it Can

Tonight, police are investigating the destruction over twelve hundred acres of sugar fields belonging to the Valley of Peace Farms Limited. Reports are that a total of four fields were set on fire between nine thirty and ten a.m., on the first of January. A spokesperson  for the company told News Five that they hope to start the harvest by today to get as much as they can out of the one million dollar investment that went up in flames.  The company faced a similar situation back in January of 2021 when someone set fire to twenty acres of field. Police are investigating.
