Saturday afternoon Yankton firefighters were dispatched to a report of a ditch fire in the area of South Jim River Road. The fire was extinguished, and the cause of the fire was quickly determined to be fireworks due to the wrappers that were left behind.

Many counties surrounding Yankton County have already enacted a burn ban, including Bon Homme and Hutchinson.
