Cannon Ball Residents Say Fire Destroyed Homes and Church
Windgusts of more than 50 miles per hour caused havoc across parts of Western North Dakota this afternoon.
Fires broke out midafternoon in Sterling and Wing. There were also two separate fires in Cannon Ball on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation.
More than 200 people were evacuated from the town and moved to the Cannon Ball Pit Stop, as the blaze approached homes.
Highway 1806 south of Mandan was closed for more than an hour.
