Several Small Wildfires Now Burning In Idaho
Several small wildfires are keeping Idaho firefighters busy.
The Bureau of Land Management Twin Falls District is fighting seven wildfires in the Magic Valley totaling more than 1,350 acres.
KTVB reports crews are trying to keep the flames from spreading to at least 11 houses and from spreading across U.S. Highway 93.
The BLM says it appears most of the fires were started by lightning, but one is believed to be human caused.
Crews are also battling a wildfire near Lucky Peak Reservoir northwest of Boise that has burned about 300 acres.
The Bureau of Land Management's Boise District says the fire started Monday and quickly grew due to high temperatures, dry fuels, steep terrain and limited access.
The agency says it appears to be human caused.
