The Pocatello wildfire that destroyed 66 homes and caused the evacuation of more than 1,000 people last week has been contained.
Crews began fighting the fire last Thursday. They had it contained by Monday morning.
Lieutenant Paul Manning of the Pocatello Police Department says today will be the last day fire crews work the scene, but they’ll continue to limit access to the area. “We’re keeping the area secure, meaning that all the residents can only enter the area with proof of residency,” says Manning.
