Round Bales Scorched

A load of hay burns destroying the trailer it was on.

A crew from Rural Fire District 3 responded to the intersection of Lockard Road and Brookville Road on Tuesday afternoon at 3:04pm.

Saline County Undersheriff Roger Soldan tells KSAL News that James Debold was pulling a load of round bales in his semi trailer truck and got a call from his daughter – who was driving behind her father in a truck.

She told him the bales were on fire.

Debold was able to detach his semi from the trailer and was not injured.

Damage is still being assessed and is expected to run into the thousands of dollars in loss.
