Tuesday, April 14, 2015

Emergency personnel were on the scene of a semi-tractor trailer fire on Highway 81 south of Yankton for nearly eleven hours Tuesday. The call for help came in at about four-thirty AM and Deputy Fire Chief Larry Nickles says after arriving on scene firefighters were hampered by the load of groceries in the truck’s trailer that was on fire. Nickles says the efforts of firefighters were made more complicated by the truck’s diesel fuel tanks. Nickles says the fire began under the hood of the semi-tractor trailer and was unsuccessfully fought by the driver before fire fighters were called to the scene.

Burning Ban Fines

Tuesday, April 14, 2015

While the ban on open burning in Yankton County remains in effect, violators are subject to being ticketed and fined up to five hundred dollars as well as facing the possibility of jail time and restitution. Yankton County Emergency Management Director Paul Scherschligt says he is hearing from fire chiefs in communities throughout the county that people are conducting open burns in spite of the ban. Scherschligt says at this time it does not appear that enough moisture will be received in our area anytime soon to justify lifting the burn ban. The Yankton County Burn ban ordinance states that along with a five hundred dollar fine people responsible for setting a fire may face imprisonment for a period not to exceed thirty days for each violation as well as the costs for suppressing the fire.
