Mexico Public Safety Responds to Grass and Dumpster Fire

Mexico Public Safety responded to a grass fire and a dumpster fire recently.

The dumpster fire happened this morning just after 5:30 at the 1000 block of West Liberty.


Public Safety reports the fire appeared to be caused by the disposal of some hot smoking material. No injuries were reported from the incident.


The grass fire happened Saturday where a fire spread through four different yards in the area of the 500 block of Yale.

The fire extended to a shed, and was threatening the back deck of another home. It was determined by Public Safety a resident was burning some yard waste when the fire started spreading quickly in several directions due to the breezy conditions.

No injuries were reported.
