Crews Begin To Demobilize From Myrtle Fire

July 24, 2012, 5:48 AM by Derek Olson

Crews Begin To Demobilize From Myrtle Fire
PRINGLE, SD -

People are back in their homes near the Myrtle Fire, which is now 75 percent contained and has burned more than 10,000 acres.

There are still plenty of tents behind Custer High School where the incident command post is set up.  But the demobilization process has begun for a lot of those people as well.

Many of them, especially local crews, have been sent home so they can be ready for an initial attack as more thunderstorms come through the area and ignite more spot fires.

The cost of bringing in crews from around the country, providing fuel for all of the airplanes and helicopters attacking the fire, and the wages of fire crews has added up to more than $2 million. 

But anybody who lives in the Pringle area where the fire is burning will tell you the efforts are well worth it.

We'll continue to bring you updates on the fire and crews' progress on KELOLAND News and KELOLAND.com
