Firefighters responded at about 8:40 p.m. Friday to this haystack aflame on Ethete Road. Officials said the Wind River Police Department is investigating the incident, which destroyed almost 90 bales of hay in a stack about the size of a one-story house. The blaze didn't threaten any other structures or property, and it was located in the middle of a wet, irrigated field, so firefighters monitored it while it burned itself out.
