EAGLE MOUNTAIN, Utah — No injuries were reported after fire crews responded to a hay fire in Eagle Mountain Saturday morning.

At approximately 1 a.m., fire crews responded to a farm where several thousand-pound rolls of hay and the structures they were stored in caught fire.

The blaze destroyed the structures. Water had to be shuttled to the scene because there was no near-by water source, according to Unified Fire Authority.

As of 7 a.m. the fire was still burning but there was total containment.

Cause of the fire is unknown at this time.

Saratoga Springs Fire and Lehi Fire also responded to the scene.
