Alabaugh Canyon Fire

On July 8, 2007 at about 0020 two Black Hills National Forest firefighters assigned to the Alabaugh Canyon Fire were entrapped by the fire and deployed a single fire shelter. At the time of the accident the firefighters were conducting burn out operations around a residence in the wildland urban interface. The two firefighters sustained a range of superficial and significant burns due to a sudden, intense crown fire near their position as they were deploying the fire shelter. The Alabaugh Canyon Fire was located five miles south of Hot Springs, Fall River County in southwest South Dakota.
