Some dramatic moments Wednesday morning in downtown Loudonville.

A trailer loaded with hay caught fire, and soon became a small inferno.  This picture was captured by Brent Fisher.

Firefighters say the driver noticed the flames and pulled over in front of the library.  The trailer was heavily damaged and the back of the truck was burned.  In fact, the flames were so intense, the library sustained some heat damage and broken windows.

The driver was hauling 125 bales of hay, headed for an auction in Mount Hope.  Investigators suspect a bearing failure on the trailer may have sparked the fire.
