Speaking to the Wimmera Mail-Times previously, Country Fire Authority District 17 operations manager Craig Brittain said all the fires had been caused by spontaneous combustion.
“These incidents are timely reminders for farmers to monitor their stacks on a regular basis,” he said.
“If they get too hot, then they will burn and they could potentially lose the lot. It’s a time to be proactive about monitoring and maintaining the stacks.
“It’s really important that people use whatever equipment they have to monitor them. If a fire spreads from the haystack, then it can do even more damage to properties.”
