The Bureau of Land Management says a wildfire burned six homes last night in a neighborhood located on the edge of Mountain Home.  Crews will remain on the scene throughout the day.  The fire has not yet been determined fully contained.  

The fire started around 7:30 PM on the southwest side of the city.  It was spread quickly by strong winds.  No injuries were reported.

According to numbers provided by the BLM, there have been more than 30 wildfires in the Boise area over the last several weeks.  The vast majority of them were started by people.  It's not clear what caused Monday night's Mountain Home fire.
