(Hay burns on the Interstate)…A Truck was hauling the hay Wednesday afternoon.
At around 2:00 pm it was discovered the hay was on fire just east of the Imperial Avenue exit in El Centro. County and El Centro Firefighters responded to the scene and found the hay fully engulfed. The California Highway Patrol detoured traffic around the fire and off the Interstate until the hay bails could be knocked down. The cause of the fire is being investigated. No injuries were reported in the incident.
