Emporia emergency personnel had an active Monday night and early Tuesday morning.
Emergency personnel were called out to the one thousand block of Burns for a one-vehicle accident around 11:30 p.m. Monday. One person was transported to Newman Regional Health, with unknown injuries.
At around midnight, the fire department was called to Jones Park where a trash can was on fire. That fire was quickly extinguished and nobody was hurt.
Authorities were then called to the scene of 2100 West Highway 50 for a separate one-vehicle injury accident. No one was transported.
