NEEDMORE, Pa. -

Firefighters from Needmore, Hancock, McConnellsburg, Breezewood and Little Orleans staved off a field fire Saturday morning that threatened to spread to three nearby homes on Papertown Road near Union Township, Pa., Needmore Volunteer Fire Co. operator Patrick Kelly said.

Kelly said about 20 bales of hay were caught in the fire, which started about 11:30 a.m., caused about $400 in damage and took about two hours to extinguish.

Kelly said the fire spread as a result of burning garbage.

No one was injured in the fire, Kelly said.
