The Jasper Fire of August 2000 burned through over 83,000 acres of land in the western Black Hills. It burned through about 90 percent of Jewel Cave National Monument and consumed over half of the monument's forested acres. What was started by an arsonist became the largest wildfire in South Dakota recorded history.
