A new report on wildfires and risk in Western states says Idaho has nearly 4,000 homes considered to be at very high risk of burning in a potential fire. The report was compiled by California-based CoreLogic and looked at potential threats in 13 states.
CoreLogic created four risk levels and then estimated how many homes exist in each. The numbers for Idaho are as follows: Low: 20,192; Moderate: 11,894; High: 6,706; and Very High: 3,927.
All together, nearly 740,000 Western homes are considered at high or very-high risk.
