Wind stirs up another fire at Crow Creek school

Firefighters were called back to the high school on the Crow Creek Sioux Reservation on Wednesday after wind rekindled a blaze that had destroyed the student dormitory.

Crews were able to douse the fire quickly before it spread to other buildings. Classes were canceled as a result.

The dorm was completely destroyed in a fire on Sunday. School and Bureau of Indian Affairs employees helped rescue four girls who were trapped in the blaze.

Students who lived at the dorm lost all of their possessions. A Crow Creek School Relief fund has been set up at the Wells Fargo bank in South Dakota. Clothing donations are being accepted at the Crow Creek Elementary School.

The high school prom will go on as planned this Saturday.
