HANKINSON, N.D. (AP) — Officials say a wildfire that’s burned about 800 acres in southeast North Dakota is under control.

Richland County’s emergency manager Brett Lambrecht says firefighters from 10 departments, including New Effington, South Dakota, helped battle the blaze in very windy conditions.

Lambrecht tells KFGO the fire is about three miles long and two miles wide. Firefighters from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service monitored the fire overnight Wednesday.

There are no injuries.
