Hot air balloonist reports hay shed fire, crews respond | Photos

CREWS from Canobolas Zone NSW Rural Fire Service (RFS) extinguished a hay shed fire near Canowindra on Saturday morning.

The blaze, which broke out on a property on Rivers Road, was reported by a hot air balloonist passing over the site.

Some wheat bales and machinery were destroyed before RFS personnel from the Billimari, Moorbel and Torrington brigades were able to control the fire by using two excavators to separate the remaining hay.
