Crews at Rosebud fires in South Dakota demobilizing

Posted: Updated:

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Officials are wrapping up work on wildfires that burned nearly 70 square miles on the Rosebud Indian Reservation in South Dakota.

The Longhorn Complex began as four separate lightning-caused fires. Crews who battled the blazes for more than a week continued to demobilize over the weekend.

The Great Plains Fire Information office says four wildfires sprang up in western South Dakota on Sunday afternoon, but none was more than an acre in size. Two were quickly contained.
