  • Paul Lansing, 88, of Palmyra, was killed during a grass and brush fire on Thursday.
    Lansing was discovered by firefighters after they were dispatched to the scene around 3:30 p.m..
    According to Otoe County Attorney David Partsch, Lansing appeared to be trying to burn material in a burn barrel he had behind some outbuildings on his property.
     “It appears that he attempted to stomp out the fire and his clothes caught fire,” said Partsch. 
    The incident is currently under investigation and an autopsy is scheduled for today.
