Hay bale fire closes road in Niles Township


Burning hay bales have closed a section of a road in Niles Township.

Fire officials say the bales were being transported on a trailer that may have been overloaded. Fire officials believe that could have caused the tires to rub, creating heat that may have sparked the fire.

The bales were taken off the trailer and put in the middle of Ironwood Drive north of Redfield Street so crews from the Niles Township Fire Department could put the fire out.
