200 round hay bales set on fire in Lafayette Parish ruled arson


LAFAYETTE, La. (KLFY) A fire that damaged 200 round hay bales in Lafayette Parish, has been ruled arson.

Scott Fire Chief Chad Sonnier said at around 11:35 a.m. Sunday, firefighters from Broussard, Carencro, Duson, Youngsville, Lafayette, Judice and Milton were dispatched to large field fire in the 900 block of Renauld Drive.

When they arrived, he said, they found an estimated 200 round hay bales on fire.

After attempting to extinguish the fire for nearly two hours, the decision was made to plow
around the bales and let it burn itself out, Sonnier said.

He said investigators have two persons of interest, and that both appear to be minors.
