HAY STACK FIRE CAUTION

Posted on: Monday, 13 March 2017 at 1:01:17 PM

DFES advises that there has been at least three fires across the region in hay stacks over the last week or so with the last one east of Narrogin destroying 4000 large rectangular bales of hay. 

The cause is believed to be spontaneous combustion due to the hay getting wet in recent rains.

If you have any amount of hay stored in the open keep a close eye on the stack for any signs of heat build-up and take appropriate action before a fire occurs.
