Firefighters tackled a hay fire in Laveen before it grew out of control late Thursday night.

The blaze broke out at around 11 p.m. at the Sacate Pellet Mill on Eliott Road near 55th Avenue.

Phoenix firefighters used frontloaders to break apart large piles of hay left smoldering after a hopper machine caught fire in one of the warehouses.

Hot spots kept firefighters on scene well after flames were doused.

No one was injured.
