Primrose Volunteer Fire Department spent several hours battling a hay bale fire Wednesday evening, March 24, at the intersection of Ridge Road and Highway 91, north of Primrose.
Round hay bales on a semi tractor-trailer had caught fire. Neighboring farmers used tractors to remove the bales from the trailer and spread them out so firemen could extinguish the flames.
The fire sent a cloud of smoke across Highway 91. Boone County Sheriff’s Department provided traffic control.
