Fire Restrictions Lifted at Mount Rushmore
KEYSTONE, S.D. (AP) – Fire restrictions have been lifted at Mount Rushmore National Memorial in South Dakota.
Superintendent Cheryl Schreier says recent moisture in the central and southern Black Hills has reduced the fire danger to “moderate.” That means wildfires can still start but normally can be contained.
Visitors still are urged to use caution, especially on windy days or when hiking or climbing in backcountry areas.
