GOLDEN VALLEY, Ariz. -- Golden Valley Fire Department officials are investigating a hay fire burning near Kingman.

They say 1,200 hay bales caught fire earlier this week and are calling it suspicious.

Crews extinguished the southern end of the stack to keep it from spreading and are now allowing the fire to burn itself out.

Officials expect it to take another 48 hours.

The estimated damage is $40,000.
