Precious hay burnt in Dalby
A SHED storing precious hay for stock was destroyed by fire last Wednesday night.
Witnesses reported flames coming from horse stables near the corner of Condamine and Wambo Streets in Dalby about 8.25pm.
Three Queensland Fire and Emergency Services units responded and battled the fire on the semi-rural property on the fringe of a residential area in the town.
Crews managed to bring the fire under control and extinguish it by 8.50pm, but were unable to save the stock feed stored inside.
Dalby police said an old car wreck parked behind the stables was also caught up in the fire which was reported by passers-by in the area.
Police said the cause of the fire was undetermined with investigators to return yesterday.
Electricity was connected to the stables and it is believed the fire damaged power lines outside the property.
The cause is unknown.
