Favorable Weather Helps Contain Dakota Fire

Favorable Weather Helps Contain Dakota Fire
RAPID CITY, SD -

Fire crews are making progress on the Dakota fire near Sheridan Lake.

Thursday's favorable weather conditions are helping fire crews keep control lines in place.

The ‘flare-ups’ and smoke that are being seen are the result of crews using fire as a tool to strengthen control lines and reduce the possibility of the fire escaping.

A Type II Incident Management Team was called in Wednesday night.

The Dakota fire has burned about 300 acres and is 30 percent contained.
