Wildfires – Nebraska, USA

Showers and high humidity have slowed the spread of the Bovee Fire west of Halsey, Nebraska. More than 100 firefighters are on scene, including two Interagency Hotshot Crews, 10 engines, and a dozer. A mapping flight at 7:30 p.m. Sunday found that the fire had burned 7,780 acres. Officially, the Nebraska National Forest is still going with 15,000 acres, an estimate developed Sunday afternoon before it was mapped from an aircraft. The Bovee Fire has prompted an evacuation of the community of Halsey in central Nebraska.
