10/29: Fire started near Oceti Sakowin camp

October 29, 2016

    Fire immediately west of Oceti Sakowin camp. Vehicle came out of nowhere to the south, seeming to cause a distraction, making donuts then sped off to the south, then a fire erupted to the west. Oct 27th Riot police cleared a protest with violence so they could have access to deliver emergency services. However, days later when the fire erupted, no help was dispatched to put out the fire until 6 hours later. Morton county BIA, was onsite and was not allowed to combat fire without explicit permission from Morton County sheriff.
