Mission Volunteer Fire & Rescue responds to structure fire in Antelope


MISSION, S.D. — The Mission Volunteer Fire & Rescue crew and several other agencies responded to a structure fire in the Antelope community Thursday afternoon.
At approximately 4:39 PM on Thursday, Mission Volunteer Fire & Rescue was dispatched for a report of a structure fire. Mission Chief 1 arrived on scene and reported a one story residential dwelling in flames, along with an uncontrolled grass fire caused by extension of the structure fire.
Due to limited personnel in the initial stages of the incident, crews prioritized stopping the forward progress of the grass fire before it could spread to a nearby residence. As additional units arrived, crews then mounted an aggressive interior attack and were able to extinguish the fire in addition to conducting primary and secondary searches of the structure to check for potential victims.
No injuries were reported and the incident remains under investigation.
Agencies that responded to this incident include Mission Volunteer Fire & Rescue, Rosebud Sioux Tribe Volunteer Fire Department, Rosebud Agency BIA Forestry and Wildland Fire Management, Rosebud Sioux Tribe Ambulance Service, Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services, and Cherry-Todd Electric.
