MARICOPA — A fire that started in hay bales next to the Pinal Energy ethanol plant on Maricopa-Casa Grande Highway Wednesday afternoon spread to nearby structures, according to Maricopa Fire Department spokesman Chris Bolinger.

Firefighters from MFD teamed up with crews from Arizona Fire & Medical Authority, Ak-Chin Fire, Casa Grande Fire and Goodyear Fire to fight the blaze and were able to suppress the fire as of 3:30 p.m.

Bolinger said the fire was complicated by high winds, and crews were still on scene working to extinguish the hay bales.

There are no reported injuries in the fire, and the cause is yet to be determined.
