DRIPPING SPRINGS, Texas (KXAN) - Even though cooler temperatures have come to Central Texas, the risk of fires still continues.
A trailer full of large, round hay bales caught fire in front of the Cowgirls and Lace store in Dripping Springs on U.S. Highway 290. KXAN News Special Projects Producer Laney Valian caught the flames in action.
At the time the video was taken, the truck had been disconnected from the trailer, but high flames still engulfed the bales.
Several fire crews rushed to the scene, putting out the fire before it spread.
According to North Hays County Fire Rescue Battalion Chief Kyle Taylor, crews still don't know how the fire started.
They said the truck's operator was inside eating at Railroad BBQ when someone came in and told him his trailer was on fire. He quickly separated the truck from the trailer which was parked in an adjacent parking lot in front of the Cowgirls and Lace gift shop.
Taylor said the fire was stubborn and that they had to bring in a backhoe to pull the hay off of the trailer to put out the flames. It took crews two hours to put out the blaze.
