Conditions Help White Draw Fire Battle

July 2, 2012, 7:05 PM by David Brown

Conditions Help White Draw Fire Battle
EDGEMONT, SD -

The White Draw Fire burning near Edgemont is currently the largest one burning in the Black Hills.

The southern edge of the fire runs along Highway 18 where the grass is burned within about a yard or two of the road. 

Authorities are assured a perimeter has been established on the southern edge. 

Overcast skies Monday and a trace of rain Sunday night made the conditions slightly more favorable Monday.  But that doesn't mean everyone is out of the woods yet.

The best news of Monday is that the 4,200 acre fire is now 30 percent contained, up from 10 percent over the weekend.

As for the C-130 crash, a Public Information Officer says the crash will not affect the air support in terms of fighting the fire because that plane was used sparingly.  Crews will now rely on two helicopters that are dropping water over the area and are being watched by an air attack plane from above.

We'll have the latest on the battle tonight on KELOLAND News at 10.
