• La Cygne library holds grand opening this week

  • Firefighters from several Linn County Rural firestations responded to a fire in Mound City last Friday. Resident of the home, Clayton York, said he woke up to flames in the hallway after the fire started from a space heater. He said he grabbed his 4-year-old and 2 1/2-year-old and ran out of the house. It was a total loss as flames moved through the entire structure. Wind didn’t help that day as it fanned the flames through the house, into a tree next to the house and shed burns.
