North Dakota/South Dakota line: Unseasonably Warm, Dry Conditions Create Inferno

Wild winds on Jan. 14, 2021, fueled a grass fire that burned a twenty mile stretch in Adams County, North Dakota, and Perkins County, South Dakota. Thirty to forty mile per hour winds drove the blaze on a crazy path past the town of Lemmon, South Dakota to nearby Shadehill, where it was finally contained along the Grand River east of Shadehill. Gusts up to fifty-six miles per hour were recorded at the Lemmon Municipal Airport on Thursday. Typically in January such winds would cause blizzard conditions and come with snow; this winter, however, has been unseasonably warm and the area currently has no snow cover at all, so the fire made fast work of dry fuels left from last summer.
