LEGION LAKE FIRE
RAPID CITY, S.D. — The third-largest wildfire ever measured in the Black Hills was sparked by a broken power line, highlighting a consideration for the future: throughout the region there are millions of apparently healthy trees that stand outside a power line right-of-way, yet are tall enough and close enough to fall on a line and spark a wildfire. Officials say it's a problem that can never be fully solved, but there are options for reducing the risk. UPCOMING: 300 words. Photo requested.
