May City, Iowa– A piece of farm implement was destroyed in a fire on Tuesday, September 13, 2022, near May City.

According to May City Fire Chief Nick Schaeffer, at about 11:50 a.m., the May City Fire Department was called to the report of a baler on fire at 6610 240th Street, one mile southwest of May City.

The chief says the fire department saw the baler that had been on fire, but the operator had been able to put out most of the flames with a garden hose. He says firefighters made sure the flames were out.

Schaeffer says no injuries were reported.

He says the cause of the fire is undetermined, but the baler was basically totaled in the blaze.

Firefighters from Ocheyedan and Melvin were also paged, but Schaeffer says they were told they could turn around after the May City firefighters arrived.

He says those who responded were on the scene for about a half an hour.
