Firefighters in north-central Nebraska and western South Dakota have made progress on several massive wildfires.
The Fairfield Creek Fire in Nebraska is now 25 percent contained. Officials say their best estimate is that the fire has burned around 90,000 acres. At least seven people have lost their homes and three firefighters have been injured.
The North Central Development Center in Ainsworth has set up a fund to accept donations for the volunteer firefighters, families in need and ranchers impacted by the fire.
To the northwest, crews have made progress on a series of fires burning on the Rosebud Indian Reservation. The Longhorn Complex Fire has consumed more than 40,000 acres. It's now 70-percent contained.
Overnight crews secured the perimeter on one of the smaller fires, South Crazy Horse. Homeowners living near the village of Spring Creek have been evacuated for the past six days but that may be lifted later Wednesday morning.
The Myrtle Fire near Pringle and Mossgate Fire near Edgemont are both 100 percent contained. Officials believe a forest service road grater sparked the Myrtle Fire which burned 10, 080 acres. Lightning started the Mossgate Fire and burned more than 4,000 acres.
