“At breakfast, Kathy Froelich fills me in on the details. The early call to her husband, Rod, was from the fire chief at the Standing Rock Reservation. A lightning strike on the edge of the ranch sent grassfire blazing across the property. The key to containing a range fire is an instantaneous response. Every rancher in this area has a pickup with a pump and a large water tanker in his truck bed. This morning, the quick action of the local Native American fire fighters, Rod, and his neighbors kept the fire damage to fewer than a hundred acres. But there’s still the threat of more lightning – a threat to more than a century of ranching here in south central North Dakota.”
