Pettis County Sheriff Brad Anders posted on Facebook just before 4 p.m. Saturday the following message:

"Emergency crews are on scene at Southwood Lane and Southwood Circle reference a collapsed roadway impacting all residents south of the above intersection. The roadway collapsed after a controlled burn appeared to impact a plastic culvert.


"A resident and firefighter sustained injuries during this event, and our thoughts and prayers are with them and their families. Please bear with us as Pettis County Road and Bridge are working diligently to rectify the road issue. This roadway is closed until further notice."
