Wind blows tree into power line, starts fire

Posted:

The wind was strong enough Thursday to blow a tree over and into a power line causing a small fire in the Black Hills.
 
A large tree, on Burgess Road, which is off of Sheridan Lake Road, blew into a power line, knocking it down and starting a fire that burned about a half an acre.

There was a house nearby that was threatened, however firefighters were able to extinguish the blaze fairly quickly.
