Rochester Fire Brigade captain Mick Hassell has warned people to make sure hay is cool before putting it into sheds after the brigade was called to a second hay fire in a week.
Rochester, Echuca Village, Timmering and Bamawm Extension brigades were called to put out a hayfire on Byrne Rd, Nanneella, just after 7pm Saturday.
About 140 big square bales of lucerne were burnt.
A excavator and two tractors were used to drag the burning bales from the shed and spread it out.
Mr Hassell said the hay would probably smoulder for three to fours days, with the fire registered with VicFire as a burn off.
‘‘If people see smoke, we urge them to see if the fire is under control before calling it in,’’ he said.
‘‘If you cannot see anyone monitoring the fire or suspect it’s out of control, then call it in.’’
The fire is the second hay fire in a week, with the brigade called to one in Ballendella earlier in the week, where a small number of bales were burnt.
