Local firemen help fight big Camargo blaze

   Just four hours after Custer County commissioners declared a burn ban here, the county’s Fire Task Force was called Monday to neighboring Dewey County to help fight a 15,000-acre blaze east of Camargo.

   And Clinton Fire Chief Randy Carpenter, who headed the task force initially, said the fire was just what commissioners were trying to avoid with their ban here – a controlled burn that didn’t stay controlled.
