County firefighters fought a hay barn fire in blistering heat on Rocky River Road in the Rich Hill community Saturday afternoon. Their massive, all-out effort kept the blaze from spreading to several nearby full turkey barns.
The fire, which was reported about 2:50 p.m. Saturday, was contained about 4:15 p.m.
However, it was by no means out then, according to a firefighter on the scene.
“It’s about 30 percent out,” the firefighter said on the emergency radio at the time.
