More evacuations have been ordered as a series of wildfires continues to burn in northwest Nebraska.
U.S. Forest Service spokeswoman Cyd Janssen says the town of Whitney was evacuated overnight as a fire that had been burning south of Chadron moved west and threatened it.
Janssen says the fire "burned right up to Whitney."
Another fire that was burning between Chadron and Hay Springs has spread north into South Dakota. The Sheridan County Sheriff's Office says a pre-evacuation order has been issued for residents in the border town of Whiteclay, Neb., and the surrounding area.
