West Routt Fire Protection District firefighters were called at about 8 p.m. Tuesday to help put out a fire that started in a hay field in the 11600 block of Routt County Road 70 near the Yampa River. Chief Bryan Rickman said a bale wagon caught fire, possibly from a buildup of hay on a hydraulic motor. The fire was put out, and the machine had minor damage. About 20 to 30 bales of hay were destroyed. Courtesy photo
