Firefighters in Lewis County dealt with two brush and grass fires Sunday.

Firefighters from LaGrange, Canton, Ewing and Maywood were called out along Route Z near Dover. LaGrange Fire Chief Grant Kennedy says controlled burns resulted in the fire calls.

Brush fires were also a problem Sunday in western Missouri. An area just north of downtown St. Joseph, Missouri was evacuated for a time after a grass fire that started in the Elwood Kansas area jumped across the Missouri River on Sunday.
