Little Dixie is reporting two fires from yesterday (Wednesday).

The first was around 1:42 yesterday (Wednesday) afternoon on Highway 22 from Thompson to Centralia.

It was a natural cover fire that originated from a passing train starting grass on fire and spreading.

It was quickly put out and no injuries or other damage was reported.
