EL MIRAGE, Ariz. -- A hay fire in the West Valley was threatening a barn and farm equipment Tuesday morning.

A semitruck reportedly caught fire near Litchfield Road and Olive Avenue and the flames spread to a nearby field.

There were no hydrants nearby so firefighters had to bring in water tanker trucks.

Litchfield Road was closed between Olive and Peoria avenues but has since reopened.
