Wild Well Control on Tuesday was able to extinguish one of three fires burning on a well pad in the Little Missouri National Grassland about a half mile from Lake Sakakawea. That leaves two fires to go from a conflagration that began July 22 and has appeared to contribute to a smoky haze over a large swath of Lake Sakakawea, along with wildfires from western states.

“(The 4H) well is now safely isolated,” Petro-Hunt spokeswoman Beth Babb told the Williston Herald. “The 3H remains on fire and is our current focus. The 2H is still burning, but under control and very small. We hope to have the 2H and 3H extinguished soon.”
