Neb., SD Fires Nearly Completely Contained

September 5, 2012, 5:19 PM

CHADRON, NE -

Fire officials say three massive wildfires in northwest Nebraska and southwest South Dakota have not grown since Tuesday and are nearly completely contained.

Fire crews had the two western-lying fires in Nebraska's northwest corner 95 percent contained Wednesday afternoon, and a third fire in Nebraska and South Dakota had been contained by late Wednesday afternoon.

Firefighters have spent the day patrolling the areas, mopping up hotspots and maintaining the fire line to prevent any flames from spreading.

Lighting sparked the fires Aug. 28, and the flames spread quickly over the tinder-dry, drought-ravaged terrain, forcing the evacuation of several communities and threatening hundreds of homes and farm buildings.
