Sheridan County

UPDATE, AUG. 6, 1:17 p.m. - Fire crews are now battling two fires in the Tongue River Canyon west of Dayton.

Knowing that more than a million motorcyclists were expected to descend on Sturgis this week, and having already seen several groups traveling through Sheridan, we asked Lt. Travis Koltiska of the Sheridan Police Department how the influx is affecting the traffic situation here and there.

Two people were arrested Tuesday night following an altercation at a local discount department store.

The cost of fighting the Sheep Creek Fire burning through a protected wildlife habitat area of the Bighorn National Forest in the Big Horn Mountains above Dayton will be shared by federal, state and county agencies.

Representatives of the various agencies fighting the Sheep Creek Fire in the Bighorn Mountains hosted a public meeting Wednesday night at Tongue River High School in Dayton. Sheridan Media’s Ron Richter has the details.

Trial dates have been set for Jan. 25, 2016, for two Sheridan men arraigned on separate charges in district court in Sheridan Wednesday.

The Sheep Creek Fire burning four miles from Dayton isn't yet a threat to the town of around 800 people, according to Mayor Norm Anderson. In an interview with Sheridan Media, the mayor recalled a more disastrous fire a few years ago.

Dayton Mayor Norm Anderson says officials and residents are vigilant about the fire that's burning within four miles of the town, but at this time, they're in no danger.
