Firefighters optimistic about Legion Lake Fire progress

Firefighters optimistic about Legion Lake Fire progress

"From hearing the briefing this morning, a lot of these firefighters say they haven't seen anything like this fire in 10 to 20 years", said Kobee Stalder, the park's visitor services program manager. Authorities with Custer County Emergency Management say all evacuation orders are lifted. The park said that the Fire Investigator's Office in the South Dakota Wildland Fire Division attributed the cause to a downed power line. Rob Powell is the Incident Commander with Rocky Mountain Team Blue.

"We've lost no structures in the park". The newspaper said the Legion Lake Fire was the third-largest fire in modern Black Hills history. He also says once park staff is released from addressing imminent fire danger, they will begin re-assessing the needs of wildlife and other areas of the park.

Highway 16A and Highway 87 in Custer State Park will remain closed, and the park itself is also closed. Powell says he saw some buffalo that were affected by the fire. Another spot fire by French Creek Horse Camp moved south-southeast through Custer State Park and Wind Cave National Park, coming within 2 miles of the town of Buffalo Gap.

Snyder thanks everyone who's reached out to the park about donations and says anyone wishing to donate hay to fire victims should do so through Farm Rescue, a farm aid non-profit. Officials say the blaze continues to burn north of Fusion Canyon.
