Eric Lorenz of the Trenton fire department said the truck driver noticed fire and got the big rig stopped in the middle lane of East 9th . That location was in the vicinity of Eastgate Shopping Center. Lorenz said the load of hay apparently shifted forward, contacting the exhaust pipe of the semi, and igniting the fire. The hay bales had to be broken apart to get fire extinguished. It was two and a half hours from the time (4:47 pm) the fire department received the call until the scene was cleared (at 7:24 pm).

Lorenz recognized assistance of Missouri department of transportation in cleaning up the scene and loading hay into dump trucks. It’s unknown how many bales were on the trailer. Lorenz said Trenton police and the highway patrol provided traffic control while that portion of East 9th was blocked. Motorists were directed to use alternative streets to bypass the fire scene.
