Early morning fire destroys house, surrounding property in southern Meade County


Gary Matthews & News Staff - July 5, 2020

RAPID CITY, S.D. - An early morning structure fire in rural Meade County esclated to three alarms.

According to a release, at 2:30 a.m. Sunday morning the North Haines Volunteer Fire Department was dispatched to 801 Virginia Ln, in unincorporated Meade County, for a reported structure fire threatening neighboring structures. 

Based on initial reports from dispatch a second alarm was requested for additional manpower.    

First arriving crews found a fully engulfed structure fire that was threatening neighboring structures, a recreational vehicle, and passenger vehicles and immediately began a defensive fire attack. 

Due to the limited manpower on a holiday weekend, and increased call volume of the July 4th holiday a third alarm was eventually requested to bring additional manpower to the scene. 

The structure of origin was a total loss, along with a recreational vehicle, passenger vehicles, and minor extension to a neighboring structure.

One firefighter sustained minor injuries.  No civilians were injured.

There is no word on the cause of the fire as an investigation continues.
