BIA to conduct controlled burns on Pine Ridge Reservation

PINE RIDGE, S.D. – Starting on Sunday, a few communities on the Pine Ridge Reservation will be conducting controlled burns.

The communities of Kyle, Pine Ridge, Potato Creek, and Wanblee will hold the burns to remove dead vegetation and lessen the chance of having a devastating wildfire.

Residents are urged to use caution in the areas around the burns and not breathe in the smoke.

Officials will conduct the burns through Tuesday.
