Pre­cious hay burnt in Dalby

Balonne Beacon - - BEST OF THE WEST -

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.
