Authorities say they're making good progress in fighting a small fire in the Custer State Park in western South Dakota's Black Hills.
The Bear Gulch fire covered more than 25 acres Sunday. Fire manager Lance Elmore says he expected the fire to be fully contained late Sunday. It's located about 1 ½ miles northeast of Center Lake in Custer State Park.
Sparks from a road grader set off the fire Friday. Fifty firefighters were battling the fire Sunday in rugged country that's thickly forested with Ponderosa pines. No buildings were threatened by the fire and no injuries were reported.
