That includes five tractors that were destroyed in the blaze; each tractor is worth$200,000.

The cause of the fire has not been determined but anyone with any information is asked to call the Arson Control Hotline at 1-800-282-5804.

The call came in around 12:30 AM and fire crews remained on the scene overnight.
