Alta, IA (KICD) — Numerous fire departments battle a barn fire.

The Wednesday afternoon fire was on a farm 7 miles southwest of Alta. Fire departments from Alta, Storm Lake, Aurelia, Newell and Galva all responded. As the Alta Fire Department arrived, they found the barn containing large round bales of hay was fully engulfed in flames.

After the fire was extinguished, an investigation determined the fire started by overheated bales in the barn. The value of the barn is approximately $25,000, and the bales were valued around $10,000.
