Yuma firefighters responded to a report of a semi-truck carrying hay on fire early Friday morning near the gas pumps at Loves’s Travel Stop, located at 2931 East Gila Ridge Road. According to YFD spokesman Mike Erfert, firefighters later learned that the truck was actually parked under the canopy at the gas pumps when the fire started. The driver got back into his vehicle and drove it away from the building and the pumps, leaving behind a trail of burning bales of hay.
