Rash of Fires Hits Rural NW Kansas County

HAYS, Kan.  -  An investigator from the Kansas fire marshal's office will help investigate an outbreak of fires in a rural northwestern county.
The Ellis County Rural Fire Department responded Thursday night to five fires in four hours outside the Hays city limits.
Rural Fire Director Dick Klaus said the first call involved a burning pile of trees. That was followed by the burning of a camping trailer, four-wheeler and personal water craft.
Crews also responded to a horse trailer and bales on fire; a fire at a storage shed; and the burning of a trailer house used for storage.
Klaus said he wasn't sure there was enough evidence left at any of the scenes to determine a cause.
