A wildfire has burned 150 acres of grass and brush near the Oahe Dam's emergency spillway.
Fort Pierre Fire Chief Rick Cronin says that hunters may have caused the weekend blaze. But he adds that can't be determined.
Cronin says high winds, warm temperatures and hilly terrain made fighting the fire difficult. Firefighters were on the scene for about four hours. No one was injured and no structures were damaged.
Cronin is reminding the public to be cautious with materials that could start open fires.
