Major fire in Keystone, SD early this morning.
Keystone is at the base of Mt. Rushmore in the Black Hills in western South Dakota. Firefighting efforts drained the town's water system so we had to use tender(tanker) shuttles. Several historic buildings including the Ruby House were lost. The White House Motel was partially destroyed.
No deaths or serious injuries reported. Damages will probably be in the millions.
I just got back from the fire and will post more as it becomes available and I get some rest. Meanwhile check:www.kevn.com, www.kelotv.com,and www.kotatv.com for the local media coverage.
