Fire in Dexter closes Highway 25 for short time

Tuesday, June 26, 2012 ~ Updated 2:40 PM

DEXTER -- Highway 25 between Dexter and Bernie was closed for a short time due to a large field fire as well as an eastbound lane of Highway 60, but both have been reopened.

Smoke and poor visibility led to the road closure as several power poles are on fire and several structures are in danger. However, no homes have been reported on fire.

It is believed sparks from a train ignited the fire.

Check back to the Standard Democrat for more information on the fire.
