Emergency medical and firefighters were called to a Peru West Sectionline Road residence Saturday for a minor farm accident.

Huron River Joint Fire District Chief Tom Beck said once his crews arrived, North Central EMS personnel had already loaded the resident.

"The resident had been caught in an auger, but the farm hands had already gotten him free," Beck said. "He had suffered a deep laceration to his lower leg that would probably require sutures."
