Historic Bob Ingersoll Mine catches fire

KEYSTONE, S.D. — The Bob Ingersoll Mine in rural Keystone, S.D., a beloved hiking and historic destination, caught fire and burned Saturday afternoon.

The call came in at 3:01 p.m. on February 26, and multiple agencies responded. Limited access due to steep, snow packed, rocky, and icy roads made the response extremely difficult.

According to Pennington County Fire Administrator Jerome Harvey, approximately two acres of grassland also burned.

The mill building appears to be totally destroyed.
