A forest fire in Custer State Park is estimated at 2,500 acres, and observers say it’s likely to grow.
About 200 fire fighters are on the scene, with more on the way.
Five residences are evacuated.
Scott Jacobson is the public information officer for the Legion Lake Fire. He says the fire is fed by windy conditions.
“It’s wind driven. They’ve got zero containment on it right now,” Jacobson says. “With the weather forecast the way it is the next several days, this is going to go into the rest of the week, we’re guessing.”
