Evacuation Ordered In Crookston, NE Due To Fire

An out-of-control blaze at Crookston, Nebraska is forcing the evacuation of the entire community. 

Fire officials say 50 mile-per-hour winds are pushing the flames.  A smoke plume over Valentine can reportedly be seen 60 to 70 miles from the fire.  Homes are burning on the western edge of town. 

The fire started in South Dakota, eight miles north of Kilgore, Nebraska.

KELOLAND's Derek Olson is on his way to the fire and will have more information on KELOLAND News at 10.
