Fire Being Restricted On Some Dakotas Grasslands

August 30, 2012, 11:35 AM

BISMARCK, ND -

The U.S. Forest Service is implementing fire restrictions on some national grasslands in North Dakota and South Dakota because of dry conditions that have elevated the danger of wildfires.

Fires and campfires are being restricted to developed recreation sites equipped with metal fire rings or elevated charcoal grills. Smoking is being prohibited except within enclosed vehicles or buildings, developed recreation sites and barren areas at least three feet in diameter.

The restrictions go into effect Friday on the Little Missouri, Grand River and Cedar River national grasslands.

Forest Service spokeswoman Babete Anderson says the 5-square-mile Deep Creek 2 fire on the Little Missouri grasslands in western North Dakota is now fully contained. The fire was sparked by lightning late last week. No structures burned and no people were hurt.
