Hay Stack Fire Hay Stack Fire

Area fire departments were called to large stack of hay on fire at Doug Long’s Friday evening, Aug. 11. The hay was lost likely due to a wet bale that was unnoticed. The stack was located just west of the water treatment plant east of Wolf Point. A stack of that size can vary between $10,000 to $20,000 which can be a harsh blow to a winter season of feeding animals. Roughly 250 bales were lost in total. The Wolf Point Volunteer Fire Department was paged around 6 p.m. and, as of Monday at 3 p.m., the stack was fully extinguished the stack to 100 percent containment. The WPVFD was assisted by BIA Fire all day and night especially with updates.
