Fire crews from Oconto, Callaway and Broken Bow responded to a call of hay bales on fire a few miles north of Pressey State Wildlife Management Area. At about 11 a.m., both the landowners and a neighbor saw smoke coming from a hay bale pile.

Landowner Yvette Mannon said there were about 200* bales of hay in the stack that was burning. The hay had been chopped and baled about 45 days ago.
