Precious hay supply destroyed as fire tears through stables

A SHED storing precious hay for stock has been destroyed by fire overnight.

Witnesses reported flames coming from horse stables near the corner of Condamine and Wambo Sts in Dalby about 8.25pm.

Three Queensland Fire and Emergency Services units responded and battled the fire on the semi-rural property on the fringe of a residential area in the town.

Crews managed to bring the fire under control and extinguish it by 8.50pm but were unable to save the stock feed stored inside.

Dalby police said an old car wreck parked behind the stables was also caught up in the fire which was reported by passers-by in the area.

Police said the cause of the fire was as yet undetermined with investigators to return today.

Electricity was connected to the stables and it is believed the fire damaged power lines outside the property.

Police said no obvious accelerants were found during initial investigations but the cause was yet to be determined.

Police have called for anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
