Hay bales de­stroyed

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

Thirty bales of hay were de­stroyed by fire south of Jer­ilderie on Satur­day, with fire­fight­ers say­ing the likely cause of the blaze was a chem­i­cal fault from the bale distrib­u­tor.

Fire­fight­ers from both Jer­ilderie Fire & Res­cue NSW and Jer­ilderie’s Ru­ral Fire Ser­vice brigade were called to the blaze about 11.10am, on a prop­erty off the Newell High­way.

The fire­fight­ers re­sponded with five tankers, and worked on con­tain­ing the blaze for ‘‘a cou­ple of hours’’.

There was a small amount of fire dam­age to the ma­chine.
