Salina Journal – August 3, 2017

A John Deere hay baler was destroyed by fire Wednesday afternoon north of Salina.

Saline County Sheriff Roger Soldan said Rural Fire District No. 7 was called to the 5200 block of Streckeful Trail at 4:20 p.m.

Jeff Jackson, 51, of Bennington, was baling grass when a bearing overheated on the baler owned by Gary Burt, 74, of Bennington.

Jackson attempted to extinguish the fire with a pump bottle but the fire spread to the grass. Damage to the baler was estimated at $16,000.
