5 hurt in hay fire

Fire crews quickly extinguished a hay fire at Lee’s Feed and Western Store in Shingle Springs on June 22 but not before five people suffered injuries.

Victims received medical aid for smoke inhalation and minor burns. About 450 hay bales, about $10,000 worth, were destroyed in the blaze and the business’ commercial building was also damaged.

Fire crews from El Dorado County, Cal Fire, Rescue, Diamond Springs and El Dorado Hills responded to the fire reported at 11:17 a.m. Less than 15 minutes later the blaze was contained, according to El Dorado County Fire Capt. Paul McVay. Firefighters remained on scene for about eight hours mopping up and ensuring the hay would not reignite.

Witnesses at the scene said the fire was started when someone left a vehicle running near the hay. Fire officials are investigating the incident.
