Bucyrus, North Dakota town destroyed overnight in devastating wildfire whipped up by 70mph winds

By Thursday morning, the 27 residents of Bucyrus had been forced to abandon their homes and take refuge in surrounding communities. Miraculously, no one was hurt in the blaze, but Adams County state's attorney Aaron Roseland described the town as 'pretty much completely lost'. The county commission chairman said the fire destroyed four homes and two abandoned farms in the town about 60 miles south of Dickinson.
