Fire crews respond to 2 wildfires near Custer and Hot Springs

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - The South Dakota Wildland Fire Division responded to two small lightning-caused fires over the weekend.

Officials say the Powerline Draw Fire was a single-tree snag in a remote area of Custer State Park.

The Curt Fire was less than a tenth of an acre on the Argyle road in the Hot Springs area.

Jim Strain with the Fire Division says that while the area has received rain and vegetation is starting to turn green, larger trees still suffer from the effects of the drought and are ready to burn.
