BUCYRUS, N.D. (WCCO) – A wildfire, fueled by heavy winds, has destroyed nearly all of a very small North Dakota town.

Authorities say Bucyrus, which is the far southwest part of the state, is “pretty much completely lost” after the fire roared through on Wednesday.

All 27 people who lived there were forced to evacuate.

Winds at the time of the fire were gusting up to 60 miles per hour.
