Authorities search for what caused massive field fire in Clarksville

CLARKSVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Investigators with the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office are seeking the public's help in the investigation of the massive field fire in Clarksville Saturday evening.

The fire occurred between Rollow Lane and the Hickory Wild Subdivision in a barn, where hundreds of hay bales caught on fire.

"The fire is under investigation," said Sgt. Steve Heise. "We're looking for information from anyone who may know how the fire started, or if anyone had seen any suspicious activity before the fire. At this time, it has not been determined if it was arson, but there are indicators that the fire had been started by someone, whether it be by accident or intentionally."

Firefighters quickly got the blaze under control, and monitored the flames while the fire burned itself out.

Officials say no injuries were reported, but a barn was completely destroyed.

Right now, it's unknown what sparked the fire.
