Accident on I-90 sparks grass fire near Kennebec

By Lucy Halverson
A pickup pulling a 44-foot office trailer along I-90 just west of Kennebec Monday afternoon was hit by a strong northwesterly gust of wind that tipped the trailer over causing metal to drag along the roadway producing sparks that set off a grass fire that burned nearly 500 acres before being extinguished. South Dakota Highway Patrol trooper Mike Welter was at the site within five minutes of the accident report, "the fire was already across the highway fence heading south," he stated.
Kennebec fire department arrived on the scene as the wind was sending the fire further south into dry pasture and crop land. Mutual aid was called in from Reliance, Presho, Vivian and Lower Brule. In addition, construction contractors in the area, and farmers brought water tankers and tractors to assist.
Northwest winds 30 to 35 with gusts even higher fueled the fire. The fire jumped two roads and continued south over 2 miles before it was contained around 8 p.m. The driver of the vehicle was not injured. A wrecker was called to remove the trailer.
