YUKON, Okla. – Despite the rain Monday evening, fire crews in Yukon had their hands full when a barn of hay caught on fire.

Around 300 bales of hay were burning when fire crews arrived at the Express Family Ranch.

The flames were so intense at one point, extra fire teams had to be called in from Oklahoma City.

Firefighters say that hay fires are especially difficult because they have to spread out the hay so they can fight it effectively.

Still no word on what caused the fire.
