SPEARFISH, S.D. (AP) _ The Crow Peak Trail in western South Dakota's Black Hills remains closed as crews battle a forest fire.
The Crow Peak Fire sparked by lightning on Saturday had grown to 50 acres Monday morning and was only 5 percent contained.
The blaze is in rugged terrain southwest of Spearfish. Firefighters are working on the ground and in the air.
Officials say lightning also touched off two smaller fires over the weekend. The National Weather Service has issued a fire weather watch for western South Dakota for much of Tuesday due to anticipated low humidity and gusty winds.
