Hay fire burns near major Calif. Interstate
WINTERS, Calif. (AP) — A fire at a hay field in Northern California is sending plumes of smoke into the air near a major interstate.
Interstate 505 near the Yolo County city of Winters remained open on Friday morning despite the blaze. Winters is about 30 miles west of Sacramento.
The fire is burning at Hay Kingdom, a hay exporting company.
Fire officials tell KCRA-TV (http://bit.ly/1bcPE4U) the blaze began on Thursday night and has consumed about 10 acres of stored hay. Three hay barn structures have been destroyed, but crews have been able to protect Hay Kingdom's main processing facility.
The cause of the blaze has not been determined. Officials say it could burn for several more days.
