Haystack alight at Kyancutta

Country Fire Service (CFS) crews responded to a haystack fire at Kyancutta on Saturday in which a forklift was destroyed.

Shortly after 2pm, CFS crews were alerted to a haystack fire on Old Mamblin Road.

Two CFS trucks from the Wudinna and Warramboo brigades responded to the call, where upon arrival they found a large forklift used to transport bales of hay fully alight.

The forklift was destroyed, however firefighters managed to extinguish the blaze immediately and prevented it from spreading to a nearby structure and to other haystacks.

Nobody was injured in the fire.

The total damage is expected to be between $80,000 and $100,000.
