Landowners have taken over the watch on hot spots remaining from the wildfire that blackened an estimated 5,000 acres in the northwest corner of Nebraska.
HARRISON, Neb. (AP) - Officials say firefighters have been sent home. It's expected that some spots will continue to smolder and smoke but won't pose a threat of spreading outside the burned area.
It's believed the fire began with a lightning strike Friday night about 10 miles northeast of Harrison. It was first reported to the Harrison Volunteer Fire Department at 7:30 a.m. Sunday.
There were no reports of injuries to residents or firefighters and no reports of damage to any structures.
