Firefighters Battle Hay Fire On I-695

BALTIMORE (WJZ)—An unusual accident causes major headaches for drivers on part of the Beltway. The incident was reported just before 11 a.m. Thursday.

Jessica Kartalija has more on what happened.

A large load of hay on a tractor trailer burst into flames on Interstate 695.

Sky Eye Chopper 13 was over the scene on the Outer Loop between the Stevenson Road and Greenspring Avenue exits.

Nearly a dozen fire engines, tankers and other equipment rushed to the scene.

Firefighters had to move the hay around to make sure it was fully extinguished.

It took nearly two hours for those flames to be put out, but no one was hurt.

There’s no word on what sparked the fire.
