Brush Fire burns near Box Elder
News Staff - February 17, 2017
BOX ELDER, S.D. - A fire burned around six acres and threatened several homes and structures on Country Road north of Box Elder Thursday.
Nervous residents watched as flames crawled up to the base of one garage before fire crews were able to corral the blaze.
Pennington County Fire Investigator Jerome Harvey says it doesn't matter what time of the year it is, people need to be careful with incendiary devises, fire or sparks.
It's believed the fie was the result of a controlled burn that got out of control.
