ABOUT 18 loads of hay went up in flames in a truck fire at Strathallan on Wednesday morning.
Rochester, Tongala, Echuca and Echuca Village brigades attended the fire on Rochester-Strathallan Rd about 9.10am.
‘‘It looked like it started as a result of a malfunction, possibly the exhaust,’’ CFA Campaspe Shire district 20 operations officer John Cutting said.
‘‘They contained it pretty quickly but were there for a little while mopping up.’’
A front end loader was used to remove the hay from the back of the 8-10 tonne truck.
