Wind, Warmth Elevate Fire Danger in Parts of South Dakota

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) – Gusty winds and warm temperatures are elevating the fire danger in parts of South Dakota.

The Wildland Fire Division is urging people who have burned brush piles in the past couple of weeks to check to make sure they are extinguished and cold, so they don’t spark a wildfire.

The National Weather Service says high temperatures Wednesday will reach into the 70s in some areas, possibly setting records.

Forecasters have posted a high wind watch in the western part of the state and a wind advisory in the central and east for Thanksgiving Day.
