Maybe Kristi got her big fireworks show after all:
Also burned up: rural land along Highway 18 near Pickstown and a house in Harrisburg. That Pickstown fire is in the middle of one of the driest parts of South Dakota, according to the July 1 UNL Drought Monitor map:
Wherever you are in South Dakota, it’s dry, and dry things burn more easily. If you’re lighting fireworks, don’t burn down the neighborhood. Use your head, watch the wind, keep a bucket of water handy, and remember: your local fire crews would prefer to spend the best holiday of the year with their families, too.
