WINTERS-

A large fire burned through the night at a hay business outside Winters. No one was injured, and firefighters are letting the fire burn itself out.

It started around 11 p.m. Thursday, and brought out three fire engines and crews from several surrounding jurisdictions. They got it under control, and contained it to a large pile of hay.

The same business had a hay fire last September.

The business is called Hay Kingdom and houses thousands of bales of hay. Firefighters say they don’t know what sparked Thursday’s fire, but hay can catch fire on its own if weather conditions are right,

A similar fire happened at Hay Kingdom last year. In the September fire, the fire destroyed a few buildings at the business and according to the company, caused $8 million in damages.
