WINTERS (CBS13) – Firefighters say that a large haystack that caught fire late Thursday night could burn for at least a day.

Crews were called to the scene near Highways 505 and 128 around 11 p.m. Thursday. The fire could be seen from the freeway and lit up the night sky.

Once firefighters realized it was a hay fire, however, they made sure it wouldn’t spread and left the scene.

The fire is now classified as a controlled burn.

About 500 tons of hay has already been burned so far Friday morning.

It is unclear what sparked the fire.
