A hay stack engulfed in flames on the weekend has continued to smoke into the start of the week.
Forest Hill Rural Fire Service responded twice on Saturday morning to reports of a hay stack alight in Gumly.
"Crews found a large hay stack well alight, with no one in attendance or contactable," an online statement said.
"Due to the fully involved nature, large quantity and the significant resources that would be required, the decision was made to let the pile burn down.
"There are no threats to life, structures or assets and crews will conduct regular checks to monitor the progress."
Forest Hill RFS said the fire will likely continue to burn for some time, and on Monday morning smoke was still billowing from the stack.
A RFS spokesperson believed the hay was owned by GrainPro.
"To get it and pull it apart would cost a lot of water and water is so precious," he said.
"The whole hay stack was fully involved.
"It took us a while to figure out who owned their hay stack. Was most unfortunate, hay and water is very valuable."
The co-owner of Grainpro declined to comment, but confirmed the site was owned by the company.
