South Dakota Department of Agriculture’s Wildland Fire Division and the South Dakota Department of Game, Fish and Parks have started ignitions on a prescribed burn at Stockade Lake.
Firefighters are planning on burning approximately five acres. This project is located on the west side of Stockade Lake near the beach and boat ramp area in Custer State Park.
The objectives of the burn are to reduce the hazardous buildup of debris and dead vegetation, which can fuel wildfires, and remove the dead layer of reeds to stimulate new growth. Weather conditions will be monitored closely to ensure prescribed fire conditions align with management objectives for the burn.
Smoke may be visible in the surrounding areas and can linger for several days after ignition has been completed. Fire crews will secure, patrol and monitor fire lines as appropriate for public and firefighter safety.
