MOSCOW, Kansas — Fire crews were called out around 11 p.m. Tuesday night to a report of a large hay bale fire.
Eyewitnesses say about 60,000 bales have burned so far.
The fire stretches more than a half mile and emergency personnel have been on the scene making sure it doesn’t spread any further.
Officials are investigating the cause of the blaze and a dollar amount for damages hasn’t been calculated.
Moscow Mayor Billy Bell says that a bioenergy company had planned to use the hay to produce ethanol.
Moscow is located southwest of Garden City in Stevens County.
