Hay Bales Smolder, Arsonist Blamed

Cole County firefighters think they may have an arsonist on their hands. Regional West Fire Chief Jack Brade says someone apparently torched 55 large hay bales in St. Martins Thursday night.

He says the bales shouldn’t pose a danger to any homes or property, but they will put off plenty of smoke. Firefighters say they will probably smolder for a couple of days.
