50 Bales Of Hay Catch Fire West Of Lubbock

A Hockley County landowner made one mistake, but you could see it from 20 miles away Friday.

NewsChannel 11 caught it on our First Alert Tower Cam. The smoke was from a major grass fire that broke out along Highway 114, near Smyer. The fire started around 7pm Friday night, when a man was plowing a field and 50 bales of hay caught fire.

Firefighters say they will let it burn out now that it's under control.
