A north-central Kansas man has died from injuries suffered in a large hay bale fire.

KAYS reports that 82-year-old Lowell Lund of rural Waldo died Friday from severe burns at a Wichita hospital.

Osborne County Sheriff Curt Miner says Lund and his son had been hauling bales when the fire ignited Thursday. Natoma Fire Chief Keith Koelling said many of the 300 bales were already fully engulfed in flames when fire crews arrived Thursday evening. The fire continued burning into early Friday morning.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
