Bundles of hay burned for hours this morning in Bucks County as heavy equipment was brought in to squash the flames.

The hay blaze began around 3 a.m. along Richlandtown Pike at Tohickon Road in Quakertown, Pa. Monday.

SkyForce10 captured video of heavy smoke coming from the fire as crews battled the blaze. The crew in SkyForce10 said the smoke could be seen from 10 miles away.

Multiple fire trucks could be seen pouring water onto the flames as workers tried to move around some of the hay with what appeared to be front-end loaders.

No immediate injuries were reported.

Crews blocked off both Richlandtown Pike and Tohickon Road as firefighters battled the blaze.

The blaze continued to smolder as of 7 a.m.
