Witnesses say two possible “agitators” were asked to leave the camp, at which point they got into a white Honda. Shortly after, the fire was spotted. At this time it is unknown what started the fire.
Dakota Access security have been spotted on sight after the fire started. Local livestreamer Myron Dewey is on the scene, but seems to be having trouble getting service at the moment.
The grass fire is reported to look worse than it is. At this time, the fire is said to be moving away from the camp and nobody appears to be in any imminent danger.
