First responders in Western South Dakota are reminding drivers to slow down and move over after a fire on I-90 over the weekend. The Interior Volunteer Fire Department says it happened on Saturday. Crews arriving on scene found a semi trailer on fire.


Three people were hurt in a weekend rollover in Deuel County. The sheriff’s department say the driver lost control on Highway 15, south of Clear Lake, Saturday morning and the SUV rolled multiple times before ending up in the ditch.



Things look a bit different at the South Dakota State Fairgrounds. The old sheep barn is gone now and construction has begun on the DEX Center. This facility will not only benefit the fair, but also provide a new event space for the huron community.
