Firing Line

Yankton firefighters were summoned to a controlled burn that got out of control at 5 p.m. Wednesday near the intersection of 444th Ave. and 309th St. According to Deputy Fire Chief Larry Nickles, the land owner was burning some logs in a group of trees when the wind came up briefly and ignited a nearby field. About three acres were burned, but there were no damages. Firefighters were on the scene for about an hour. (Kelly Hertz/P&D)
