Fire Near Murdo Contained

September 19, 2012, 9:55 PM

Fire Near Murdo Contained
MURDO, SD -

A fire burning near Murdo Wednesday evening caused some headaches for drivers on Interstate-90.

The fire caused the Interstate to be shut down for a while earlier Wednesday evening. It has since opened back up.

Authorities say the fire started when a semi hauling hay caught fire. The hay then blew of the truck as it was driving, starting three separate fires, one of which was nine miles long and a mile wide.

While the fire did destroy an old barn and a few abandoned out buildings, the biggest loss is the hay which is in high demand this drought.

Fifty units from a dozen volunteer fire departments and the forest service were able to contain the fire once the sun went down, the temperature dropped and the wind stopped.
