Windsor Severance Fire Rescue Fighting a Large Haystack Fire
Windsor Severance firefighters say they are battling a large haystack fire northwest of the Windsor Reservoir.

They go on to say that haystack fires require "tearing apart the piles" which takes a long time, so they will be on site for most of the day.
