Jackson juveniles light fireworks, start grass fire

Jackson Police report several juveniles set off fireworks in a subdivision Thursday, setting off a small grass fire. Fire crews responded to the fire at Lonesome Cove Road in the Saddlebrooke Ridge subdivision around 12:45 pm. Fire crews had the fire contained quickly to prevent massive damage. Deputies say no charges will be filed as lighting fireworks is not banned in Cape Girardeau County, but it is still extremely discouraged due to a severe drought in the area.
