EAST OF FIFE RECORD, SEPTEMBER 7, 1906
HAY CART ON FIRE
Excitement was occasioned near Cairneyhill on Saturday by a cart of hay gong on fire.
A cart belonging to Mr Charles Beveridge, farmer, was proceeding along the highway, and when near to Cairneyhill the hay was observed to be on fire.
Before the flames could be extinguished the hay, valued at £3 10, and the cart at £14, were both destroyed.
The fire is supposed to have been caused by a match having been thrown amongst the hay.
