Lawn Mower Starts Hay Barn On Fire


EMMETT TOWNSHIP, MI (WKZO) -- A barn fire on Beadle Lake Road in Emmett Township is being blamed on the exhaust from a lawn mower that sparked bales of hay stored there.   Owner Hugh White says he had gotten the lawn mower started and was moving another when the first mower rolled into the hay and ignited the bail.  The 89-year-old strawberry and pumpkin grower says there was nothing he could do to keep it from spreading.

Fire crews were able to keep it from spreading to other structures.
