    "in" or "on"

    Quick question: "Fire in the field" or "fire on the field"? If they're both valid, what's the difference in meaning?

    What context would the phrase occur in? Please provide at least one complete sentence.

    There's a fire in/on the field. (meaning: a part of a field is burning)
