Firefighters respond to hay fire in Dunn County


Around 3:30 PM Mountain time the West Dunn Fire Protection District responded to a hay fire on a farm just South of Manning, ND.

West Dunn Fire Chief, Ryan Hauck, said about 14 firefighters, five grass unit vehicles, and three water tankers responded to the incident, after receiving a phone call from the property owner.

The fire burned for three hours in dry and windy conditions, and Hauck said the cause of the fire was hay combustion from putting up hay that’s too wet.

The fire index rating for Dunn County is high as of today, but Hauck said the conditions outside had nothing to do with the cause of the fire.

Around 20 bales were destroyed in the fire, but no injuries or damage to any structures was reported.

Hauck said the fire has been contained.
