LEMMON, S.D. (AP) – The U.S. Forest Service has scheduled a public meeting to talk about a grassland fire in the western Dakotas that spread during a prescribed burn.
The meeting is set for 4 p.m. Saturday at the North Dakota State University research center in Hettinger, N.D.
Forest Service officials say they will provide details about the fire and information for processing claims.
The prescribed fire escaped containment lines southeast of Hettinger, N.D., on Wednesday and moved into South Dakota’s Perkins County. It has covered 22 square miles.
Officials say full containment was expected by Friday evening.
