Cooler Evening Weather Helps Dakota Fire

Cooler Evening Weather Helps Dakota Fire
RAPID CITY, SD -

People in 18 homes near Rapid City have been told they might have to evacuate due to a forest fire that continues to grow.

Fire crews are still battling the Dakota Fire about 15 miles southwest of Rapid City near Sheridan Lake.

The fire has grown to 300-acres and is currently 30 percent contained and Wednesday evening's weather could help crews gain even more ground.

"Over the evening as the temperature cools off, the air gets moister so the fire doesn't like to burn as intensely,” safety officer Charles Frohme said.

A Type II incident management team arrived at the fire Wednesday night and is determining what resources will be needed when the temperatures pick up again Thursday.
