Fire Crews Begin To Leave Black Hills

Fire Crews Begin To Leave Black Hills
EDGEMONT, SD -

Fire crews in the Black Hills are beginning to demobilize to assist other fires across the region.

The Parker Peak Fire is now 100 percent contained and the size of the area has been reduced to 650 acres after some more precise mapping was done.  Thursday crews will concentrate on mopping up the scene, which is 12 miles east of Edgemont.

The White Draw Fire, which is northeast of Edgemont, has consumed 8,900 acres and continues to threaten 22 structures and 31 outbuildings.  Burnout efforts have helped increase the containment level to 80 percent.  Wednesday night, crews worked on mopping up and keeping an eye on the fire lines and around structures. 

There are now 436 people, including three Type-1 Hand Crews of 20 people each working the fire.  They're dealing with  difficult conditions including steep ravines, inhospitable terrain, and rattlesnakes.

KELOLAND's Derek Olson is back in the area of the White Draw Fire Thursday where crews hope the weather conditions will help them get the fire contained today.
