Spickard Fire Department responds to hay bales on fire


The Spickard Fire Department responded to two calls Friday.

Training Officer Jesse Richmond reports the department responded to a small grass fire on Highway 65 about a mile outside of Spickard around 4:30 Friday morning.

The fire was so small that three personnel stomped out the fire with their feet.

Richmond reports the department also responded to a call on JJ Highway around 3:30 Friday afternoon.

He says about 20 to 30 large hay bales were on fire and Spickard received mutual aid from Mercer County.

Richmond adds firefighters spent about an hour and a half to two hours at the scene.
