As promised, here is the last batch of photos from the Dudley Fire that damaged a structure and burned two acres in Buffalo Gap, about 24 miles south of Rapid City, South Dakota.
In addition to state and federal engines, there was a sizable contingent of resources from volunteer fire departments that helped fight the fire. And there were quite a few local residents that showed up carrying shovels. The woman in these photos found a McCleod tool somewhere and wanted to pitch in and help the firefighters, but after a wind shift she found the fire spreading toward her and had to make a strategic withdrawal. The local residents helped pull hose, put in a bit of scratch line, and operated a tractor and a dozer to move the large burning cottonwood trees after they were felled, and helped spread the burning hay so it could be mopped up.
