Quite a few resources, including brush engines, were dispatched to a structure fire at the Humane Society north of Hot Springs, South Dakota today. In the windy conditions there was probably a fear that the fire could spread into the vegetation and then threaten additional structures. However the Hot Springs fire department was able to confine the fire to the structure, which appeared from a distance to be a total loss.
The dozens of dogs kept at the facility were pretty excited by all of the unusual activity.
Below is a photo taken today that gives you an idea of the wind conditions.
