A combine in Waverly mysteriously burst in flames this afternoon.

Waverly Fire Chief Glen Brown says the cause of the fire, which occurred at Stayton Dairy Road, could have been from a hydraulics issue.

Fire crews from Waverly and Franklin responded to the combine fire at around 1 p.m. and the all clear was given about an hour later.

Brown says the combine is listed as a total loss.

Correction: we previously reported the combine fire was from an explosion and was under investigation. These were incorrect facts.
