Evacuations Underway For Fire Near Pringle

July 20, 2012, 6:17 AM by Derek Olson

Evacuations Underway For Fire Near Pringle
PRINGLE, SD -

About 33 residences are being evacuated for a wildfire that's spreading near Pringle.

The Myrtle Fire has grown to about 1,500 acres. Officials say lightning sparked the fire Thursday afternoon in a ravine between Wind Cave National Park and Pringle and quickly spread to some timber. 

It raced up to the top of some trees and across the tops of the trees in what is known as a crown fire, which is very fast-moving and very difficult to combat.  And Friday's extremely hot and dry weather conditions are expected to make the battle even more difficult.

At this point resources on scene include a Type-One Hot Shot Team and numerous agencies including the Forest Service and State Wildland Fire.  They're using helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft to fight the flames from the air and have more resources on the way.

Highway 385 from Pringle to Wind Cave is closed. The highway through Wind Cave National Park to Custer State Park remains open.
