Firefighters contained a hay bale fire in West Sacramento Tuesday.
West Sacramento police said 12 hay bales caught fire just before 6 p.m. on Lake Washington Boulevard, near a West Sacramento Fire Department station.
Because of windy conditions, firefighters asked the city for a front loader in order to extinguish the flames. In certain cases, crews would let hay bale fires burn out on their own.
The wind also spread smoke and ash from the fire into surrounding areas.
By Tuesday night, crews contained the blaze and were mopping up the scene.
