Hay Burning

We've been called out to 4 hay shed fires in the space of 5 days.

All those little showers of rain we had last month led to hay being baled damp and now its all igniting and going up in smoke! As if the poor farmers don't already have enough problems with the drought.

*shakes head*

The poor bloke who's place we were called to today had already had one shed go up last Friday. The shed that went up today is next to his wheat field so we are keeping a careful eye on it so that he doesn't also lose his crop.

At least we haven't had anything light up in a national park yet from lightning strikes!
