Structure Fire

Fire damages shed on Old Folsom Road Wednesday night


News Staff - November 19, 2020

RAPID CITY, S.D. — Shortly after 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Rapid City firefighters responded to a structure fire at Forest Products Distributors.

The 200 by 50 ft. storage shed, located on Old Folsom Road in Rapid City, was used to house equipment for the company.

When fire crews arrived on scene, they noticed large flames coming from the shed. With no fire hydrants readily available, water tenders were brought in by other agencies including Rapid Valley Fire Department, Box Elder Fire Department, North Haines Fire Department, and Whispering Pines Fire Department. R.C.F.D. was able to quickly extinguish the flames.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation. This was the fifth fire that the RCFD had responded to on Wednesday.

Citizens are urged to take extra precautions with the high winds and extreme fire danger.
