Tree Fire in Defiance, OH

Check out this crazy fire burning inside of a hallow tree!
Info From Licensor: "I am a truck driver and was at a customer to pick up a load. When I first got there, there was no smoke but you could smell what smelled like campfire. I didn't think anything of it. I went into the customer to give them my information and when I came out there was a lot of smoke. The man who was taking my info mentioned he had been smelling smoke all morning and didn't know what it was.

We followed the smoke around to the side of the building and noticed it was coming from one tree that was down a hill, next to a river. The smoke died down but we could see flames coming from the tree so the other guy went down and saw it up close. He said I had to see it so I went down and saw it up close and recorded it to show my girlfriend who was waiting in the truck.

I slipped and fell twice, and on the second fall I must have accidentally stopped the video.

A fire chief was called and he looked at it but I don't think fire trucks actually came out. I left shortly after."
