Feedlot Fire

KSAL StaffJuly 9, 2021

A heavy loader was destroyed by fire at a feed lot.

Saline County Sheriff Roger Soldan tells KSAL News that just before 7pm on Thursday, fire crews were sent to Rolling Hills Feedlot, 901 S. Hedville Road after a Caterpillar bucket loader caught on fire inside a Morton building.

Staff was able to remove several vehicles and machines as the fire began to spread, but could not save a Bobcat skidsteer or a couple of ATVs that were parked nearby the loader.

One employee was checked out by EMS for smoke inhalation but was not transported to the hospital.

Rural Fire District #3 responded to the scene to douse the blaze.

Loss and damage is estimated at $177,000.
