Relief fund set up for North Dakota town hit by wildfire

Posted: Updated:

BUCYRUS, N.D. (AP) - A relief fund has been set up for residents of Bucyrus after a wildfire swept through the small southwestern North Dakota community.

 Dakota Plains Federal Credit Union in Hettinger has set up a fund, and also has established a $50,000 pool from which to make low-interest loans to fire victims.

Authorities say the Wednesday fire destroyed four homes, two vacant farms and a picture-framing business. The cause of the fire that was fanned by strong winds was not immediately determined. None of the two dozen residents of the town was hurt.

 Mike and Evelyn Krug are among those who lost their home. Evelyn Krug tells The Dickinson Press that she doesn't know how the community will move on.
