EPHRAIM -- Heat from the rear brakes of a semi truck caught its load of hay on fire Thursday traveling through Ephraim.

The truck was on the north end of Ephraim on U.S. Highway 89 near the Walmart when just before noon heat from the rear brakes caught the load of hay on fire.

Home video shows flames shooting off the back of the truck and fire fighters trying to extinguish the fire.

No one was hurt and the highway was not ever closed off.
