Crews fighting prairie fire southeast of Buffalo, S.D.


HARDING COUNTY, S.D. — Crews in Harding County are working to contain a grass fire southeast of Buffalo currently estimated at six to seven miles long and one mile wide.

Buffalo, Reva, Ludlow, Harding, Redig, Bowman N.D., Castlerock, Bison, Prairie City, Lemmon, and Belle Fourche units are on-scene, among others.

The fire is burning on multiple private ranch units, and terrain – including multiple creek crossings – is making it difficult for fire crews to work around.

NewsCenter1 will provide more information as it becomes available.
