What can happen, sometimes, when you’re trying to make hay while the sunshines…

Hay truck fire closes eastbound I-84 near North Powder
(Click on photos to enlarge) OSP Photos

Oregon State Police report that a truck driver hauling hay saw a sickening sight in his rear view mirror at around 10:45 this morning on I-84. As he drove eastbound just north of North Powder, smoldering hay bales erupted in flame. The driver pulled over and called 9-1-1 but was forced to watch his load and the truck go up in flame.

The eastbound lanes of I-84 remain closed at this hour (12 noon). No cause has been determined. However, such fires are commonly caused by passing motorists flicking burning cigarettes out their windows as they pass the slower moving hay trucks. Spontaneous combustion is another typical cause. No injuries.
