(ABC 6 News) – First responders were called to a report of a hay bale fire in Oronoco Saturday night.

According to the Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office, deputies received reports of a fire around 8:30 p.m. to a flatbed, agricultural trailer parked behind the Oronoco Gas ‘n Go on Cedar Center Ave.

Deputies say there were around 10-12 hay bales on the trailer when the fire started. It is believed to have started due to the bales being wet from recent rain and most likely combusted.

Firefighters with the Oronoco Fire Dept. say the trailer sustained holes due to the fire damage and all of the hay bales are no longer usable.

First responders were on the scene again Sunday morning to wet the area to ensure another fire did not ignite.
