Woman Dies In Dakotas With No Propane To Heat Home

February 5, 2014, 6:14 AM

Woman Dies In Dakotas With No Propane To Heat Home
FORT YATES, ND -

Authorities are tying the death of a woman on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation in the Dakotas to a propane crisis there.

Tribal and Sioux County authorities tell The Bismarck Tribune and KXMB-TV that Debbie Dogskin was found dead on Tuesday morning in a Fort Yates mobile home that had an empty propane tank. The overnight low temperature dropped to about zero that day.

Dogskin was in her early 50s. A cause of death wasn't announced. The Bureau of Indian Affairs declined comment.

The tribe has declared a state of emergency because about 5,000 homes on the reservation that straddles the North Dakota-South Dakota border are heated by propane. The fuel has more than doubled in price because of a nationwide shortage.
