I store all my hay in the barn. If you buy hay that's been properly cut, dried, tettered and baled, there really isn't much chance of spontaneous combustion.
Make sure to stack it properly, and leave room on the sides and top to promote good air flow. That will help keep it safe to store indoors, as well as make sure it doesn't mildew.
I buy 60-100 bales at a time, and I can't afford to lose any of it to rot or mildew.
My barn is no more than 50 feet behind the house, and I've never worried about my hay catching fire.
