Jeremy BohnApril 12, 2021

Fifteen bales of hay are lost in a rural Saline County fire that quickly became out of control due to the wind.

Saline County Sheriff Roger Soldan tells KSAL News that Sheriff’s deputies and Rural Fire District No. 2 responded to a field on fire at 3225 E. Lapsley Rd. at 1:50 p.m., Sunday.

The fire destroyed 15 hay bales along the west tree line of the property, totaling in $1,125 loss. The property’s owner is 61-year-old Connie Cox-Dorf, Assaria.

Investigation in to the fire finds that individuals had been fishing at a pond nearby and started a fire in a fire pit. However, the wind whipped embers west to a field and the fire quickly raged out of control.
