A grass fire south of Emporia is keeping two area fire departments occupied Saturday.
A day after a notable grass fire developed about two miles east of Neosho Rapids, another grass fire started about three miles north of the town.
If you had a controlled burn planned for Sunday, expert advice is to hold off. If you have a burn planned Saturday, take all precautions to make sure it's out.
Travelers on Interstate 35 to our east will notice an extended patching project starting soon.
Emporia Recreation Commission board members are meeting Monday evening.
