A fire that quickly got out of control caused some tense moments on a large dairy farm near Hague, Sask., on Wednesday afternoon.
Hague Fire Department Chief Dane Friesen said the blaze started when a tandem semi hauling manure caught fire. The flames spread to some nearby bush, setting roughly 10 acres ablaze.
It spread further, setting hundreds of hay bales on fire and two large piles of silage, which is used to feed cattle.
Hundreds of tires, used to hold down the silage, were also burning. Hague got help from the Rosthern and Osler fire departments, along with help from the province.
Friesen added they had a lot of community support from farmers hauling water, to people making them food.
