Update on Hay Bale Fire... Salisbury Fire Dept was first on scene, when passing over the overpass at the Big Stop and Trans Canada Highway all you could see was a 40 foot high wall of fire at the farm . Firefighters had to spray the excavator so the hydrolic hoses wouldn't burn off. Also lost in the fire a large tractor and bailer. There were 2 other large barns nearby, but they were saved. Fire Departments responding were Salisbury, Havelock, Petitcodiac, Riverview and Elgin along with over 60 firefighters...mostly volunteer and 9 pieces of apparatus.
