Crews Gaining On National Park Fire

(Watford City, ND)  --  Crews are making progress on the Horse Pasture Fire in the Theodore Roosevelt National Park.  The five-thousand acre fire was 50-percent controlled yesterday.  Lighter winds have helped crews battling the blaze.  Back-burning is helping to eliminate vegetation to contain the blaze. Fire crews will continue back-burning along U.S. Highway 85 to limit fuel for the fire.
