Southeast SD Wildfire Burns 1.5 Square Miles

Southeast SD Wildfire Burns 1.5 Square Miles
TABOR, SD -

No one was hurt and no structures were damaged when a controlled burn at a Hutterite colony in southeastern South Dakota ended up scorching 1 ½ square miles of land.

Tabor Fire Chief Ken Carda says he gave the Bon Homme Colony permission to burn tree piles on Friday. The fire burned out of control, and five area fire departments and a state wildfire team eventually were called in.

The fire was out by Saturday evening, and officials monitored the area for flare-ups on Sunday. Most of the property that burned belongs to the Hutterite colony, though two adjacent landowners also lost some grassland.

The Bon Homme County Commission is expected to discuss a burn ban this week due to dry conditions.
