Crews Make Progress On White Draw Fire

July 3, 2012, 6:31 AM by David Brown

Crews Make Progress On White Draw Fire
NEAR EDGEMONT, SD -

The good news Tuesday along the lines of the White Draw Fire is that it's now 50 percent contained.  It's grown from 100 acres Friday to about 4,950 acres but the level of containment is an improvement from Monday when it was only 30 percent contained.

The air around the fire has an eerie feeling Tuesday morning as a haziness has settled in the area.  That's because the winds have died down.  Monday, there wasn't as much smoke on Elbow Canyon Road because the winds were blowing from east to west but those have died down. 

The road is the western edge of the White Draw Fire perimeter as crews have established Highway 18 as the perimeter to the South.

Fire crews are meeting at 6 a.m. local time to develop a plan of action for the day.  Monday, they used two drop helicopters to drop water as an air attack plane was guiding them from above.  That helped ground crews get to the hot spots to get the fire under control.
