(S.D.)-White Draw Fire Near Edgemont Nearly Contained
EDGEMONT, S.D. (AP) - A wildfire that scorched nearly 9,000
acres in southwest South Dakota is now 95 percent contained, and
some firefighters who battled the blaze are being dispatched to
other Western fires.
More than 400 firefighters fought the White Draw Fire near
Edgemont. Last Sunday, a C-130 air tanker crashed, killing four of
the six crew members from a North Carolina National Guard unit.
The fire danger in the region is still high, and officials are
urging members of the public to continue being cautious.
