Northwest Neb. Fires Will Leave Lasting Impact

September 2, 2012, 1:30 PM

Northwest Neb. Fires Will Leave Lasting Impact
CHADRON, NE -

Ranchers who live in the area know that the wildfires raging in northwest Nebraska and southwest South Dakota will leave a lasting impact on the land.

Verona Douthit has lived in the hills of northwest Nebraska all 65 years of her life, and now she has a fire named for her because one of the wildfires started on her family land.

Douthit says she knows it takes a long time for the land to recover from fire because some of her family's land burned in 1989, and the pine trees she loves may never be the same.

But Douthit says it's fantastic to see the way people came together to help fight the fire.

The Douthit fire has burned nearly 30,000 acres, but it is now roughly 95 percent contained.
