Fire crews raced to a Lancashire barn after 30 tonnes of straw caught fire.
Five engines were called to a barn at Moss Edge Farm in Cockerham, and smoke could be seen for miles around.
The first crews arrived at about 4pm on Monday, and fire fighters were still at the scene at 10pm.
Watch manager John Timperley said engines from Garstang, Lancaster, Preesall and Bolton-le-Sands attended the blaze, thought to have been started by accident.
He said the bales were “burning well”.
He said: “We used all the fire engines to locate water supply around the barn, including two large tanks of water on the farm.
“We committed two fire fighters into the barn using breathing apparatus.”
Once the fire was under control, the hay was moved into a field where it continued smouldering.
