Suspicious Franklin County Hay Fires Spark Investigation
These aren't just a few bales here and there, they're three large haystacks made up of hundreds of bales.
In the last two days, Franklin County Sheriff's Deputies have responded to three different large haystack fires, all of them reported in the area of Eltopia West and Glade Roads.
All three were reported having been started during nighttime hours. They're officially listed as suspicious, and Deputies are investigating.
Given our weather lately, it's likely they were set. Anyone with any information is urged to call (509)-6283-0333. All leads can be confidential. These images show the stacks after they were torn down spread apart and allowed to burn under control--about the only real way to get them under control quickly.
