Roads Closed Due To Dakota Fire

June 27, 2012, 2:06 PM by Derek Olson

Roads Closed Due To Dakota Fire
RAPID CITY, SD -

Heavy smoke from a wildfire is filling the air near Sheridan Lake.

People at a dozen homes have been told they may have to evacuate depending on what happens with the Dakota Fire, which is about 15 miles southwest of Rapid City.

The fire started Tuesday and has grown from 20 acres to 150 acres.

A type two incident team is being called in to help get the fire under control. 

The hills all around Sheridan Lake are nearly obscured from sight due to heavy smoke from the fire. 

Anxiety is high among firefighters.  There are a number of trees that have been damaged by pine beetles in the area where the fire is burning, so there is concern it could turn into a volatile situation. 

The fire has also forced the closure of some roads in the area.  Click on the map below for a better look at those closures.
