An 88-year-old Palmyra farmer was killed in a grass fire.  Palmyra and Bennet Fire and Rescue crews found the body of Paul Lansing at 236 F Road Thursday afternoon.  Fire officials believe Lansing was burning items in a barrel and the fire started grass on fire.  Officials say it appears Lansing tried stomping out the fire, but it grew to the point where he couldn't escape.
