Crews fighting a wildfire in southwest South Dakota received some help from Mother Nature.

As of 11 a.m. Monday, the fire remains at 12,000 acres but is 0 percent contained. Custer County Emergency Manager Lesa McDermott hopes that a good amount of the Indian Canyon Fire is out after rain fell Sunday near the Wyoming border.

Fall River County officials said thunderstorms are expected on Monday afternoon. The storms could help suppress the fire, but crews are concerned that severe storms could hinder their progress.

About 60 people from a neighborhood in Edgemont were evacuated as the fire grew on Sunday night. But crews have since cancelled the mandatory order.

The public is asked to stay out of the area as firefighters battle from the flames from the ground and air. It is believed that lightning started the fire over the weekend.
