MOUND CITY – Linn County firefighters were called to perform a water rescue last week at Linn County Lake, according to Doug Barlet, Linn County fire chief. A fishing boat on the lake began taking on water, and rescue teams from La Cygne and Mound City responded to the 911 call.


Barlet said the man had gotten the boat to shore but it had gone under water. Evergy employees at the La Cygne Generating Station used heavy equipment to help get the sunken boat out of the water.
