Nearly contained, Nebraska’s Bovee fires chars 19,000 acres of forest, ranchland

The latest wildfire in the Nebraska sandhills has burned nearly 19,000 acres of ranchland, but officials say it’s almost contained.

The Nebraska National Forests and Grasslands Service says the Bovee Fire was 94 percent contained Thursday morning.

This week rancher Jason Hoffman told Brownfield conditions continue to deteriorate. “There’s places around here that have less rain than they did in 2012.  IT’s extremely dry.  This year with the extreme heat and big winds we’ve had, it’s wiped any moisture we’ve had out.”

He said there has been minimal relief from Mother Nature this year.
