Myrtle Fire 40 Percent Contained

July 23, 2012, 5:35 AM by Derek Olson

Myrtle Fire 40 Percent Contained
PRINGLE, SD -

Fire crews in the Black Hills are still battling the Myrtle Fire, which has burned more than 10,000 acres near Pringle and is 40 percent contained. 

The incident command post for the Myrtle Fire is set up at the high school in Custer.  There are currently about 500 firefighters from all over the country helping get a handle on the flames which forced hundreds of home evacuations. 

Thunderstorms have passed over the area recently but just as they've brought rain, lightning has also sparked spot fires which are also keeping crews busy.

One of the newer lightning-sparked fires is the Mossgate Fire.  It's already scorched more than 7,000 acres about ten miles northwest of Edgemont and is currently burning into Wyoming. 

That fire is threatening some structures and oil-drilling equipment.

We'll continue to bring you updates with the latest on the fire throughout the day on KELOLAND News and KELOLAND.com.
