A South Dakota wild fire has forced evacuation of more than 240 homes and caused the closure of Wind Cave National Park. The Myrtle Fire started 2 days ago and has charred4 more than 7500 acres in the Black Hills, but still only 15% contained. South Dakota public broadcasting's Charles Michael Ray reports.
While high temperatures and low humidity are making it difficult for those battling the Myrtle Fire, information officer Kelly Stover says cruise are happy they're getting the air resources they need. She says fire fighters on the ground are getting help from above by 6 helicopters and 3 air tankers5
For up a ?? fire to have all those air resources, that's pretty unusual. But because there's really nothing going else going on in the region. We were able to get those, so we're really lucky with that right now. Cruse in the Black Hill have put out more than 15 lightening caused wild wire since Monday. Stover notes that afternoon thunderstorms brought in more lightening today, which could mean more new fires. For NPR News, I'm Charles Michael Ray in Rapid City, South Dakota.
