DEADWOOD - Legal battles remain seven years after the Grizzly Gulch Fire, and at least one property owner is getting frustrated.

Whistler's Gulch Campground owner Tom Blair says he wants a settlement with Black Hills Power Inc. or a court date.

Black Hills Power officials aren't saying how many lawsuits they still face.

The utility reached a legal settlement in 2006 with the state and federal government by agreeing to pay them nearly $6 million for fire damage.

But the power company did not acknowledge any liability for the blaze, which charred 19 square miles of forest in the Deadwood area and destroyed seven homes in the summer of 2002.
