Fire Spreads On Pine Ridge Reservation

Fire Spreads On Pine Ridge Reservation
PINE RIDGE, SD -

A fast-moving wildfire from Nebraska has spread into the Pine Ridge reservation, burning more than 25,000 acres and destroying one home and a couple of outbuildings.

The fire burned northwest of Pine Ridge village before heading toward the Oglala district Friday evening. That prompted Oglala Sioux Tribe President John Yellow Bird Steele to issue an evacuation order for residents of Slim Buttes, Calico, Tobacco, Number 4 Payabaya, Lakeside and Oglala.

Pine Ridge BIA agency deputy superintendent Harold Compton says evacuation orders have been lifted, as the fire on Saturday is being kept south of Highway 18. But he says with triple-digit temperatures, low humidity and gusty winds, fire crews aren't out of the woods yet.

The National Weather Service says a red flag warning is in effect through 11 p.m.
