Firefighters are responding to the Hilltop Alley Fire near Lucky Peak. The fire has shut down Idaho Highway 21 in both directions between Lucky Peak Dam Road and Highland Valley Road.
David Olson with the Boise National Forest says the fire has burned 300 acres and destroyed two outbuildings. Crews are working to protect the Lucky Peak helibase and nursery.
Air tankers, two helicopters, and several engines are fighting the fire which started Tuesday afternoon. Olson says firefighters are making progress, but the fire is being fanned by gusty winds.
