$230,000 hay shed fire at Copeville - 14 November 2022

CFS crews from the Halidon and Galga brigades have responded to a hay shed fire at Copeville.

2 trucks attended the incident but unfortunately the shed was unable to be saved with losses estimated at $230,000.

Firefighters have now left the scene but remain on standby as the land owner continues extinguishing the fire.

CFS encourages farmers to take care in storing and monitoring the moisture of hay this season. Just one damp bale is enough to ignite a haystack. If bales become damp, they should be stored separately and closely monitored.
