More than 546 acres of forest in the Black Hills National Forest in Southwest South Dakota have burned, reports the Argus Leader.
The fire was contained Saturday night according to the National Forest Service.
The fire was started Wednesday after a lightning strike. No damage or injuries have been reported.
The fire, named the Apple Fire burned mainly grass, shrub and seedlings, leaving most of the Ponderosa pine trees with little to no damage, according to the Rapid City Journal.
Small fires that only burn the ground and small shrubs can be good for many ecosystems in the Black Hills and many of the plants grow back quickly, reports the Rapid City Journal.
