Grandstand at the Burt County Fairgrounds Burns


At around 4:00 a.m. this morning, the Oakland Fire Department and Lyons Fire Department responded to a call that the grandstand at the Burt County Fair grounds was on fire. The south end of the grandstand suffered the worse damage. It is unknown at this time what caused the fire. The Burt County Fair personnel had this to say about the early morning fire.

As many of you may have heard, the Burt County Fair has been tested yet again. From flood to fire, we have truly been put to the test this year. No need to worry though! We will put in the extra man hours at the expense of a few extra hours of sleep in order to make the 2019 BCF great! All events will still go on as scheduled! See you all in 2 weeks! We would like to thank the Oakland and Lyons Fire Departments for their hard work and diligence early this morning.
