Magnolia, Buffalo and LaRue County firefighters responded to a barn fire about 8:30 a.m. June 3 on Parker Grove Spur Road.
The fire started after a few rolls of alfalfa hay inside the hoop barn began smoldering, according to Trena Morris, who owns the farm with her husband, Derek. Freshly baled hay has the potential to generate enough heat to cause spontaneous combustion – which is believed to be the case in the Morris’ fire.
The Morris family learned of the fire when a neighbor pulled in the driveway and honked.
