STANLEY, Idaho (AP) — Ground and air crews are battling a 60-acre wildfire burning through sagebrush about 10 miles south of Stanley in central Idaho. U.S. Forest Service spokeswoman Julie Thomas says the goal on Wednesday is to put out the Gold fire before it has a chance to spread. She says the fire grew to 60 acres in a matter of hours after starting Tuesday afternoon and is being fought by two hotshot crews, two helicopters and five engine crews. She says an air tanker made a retardant drop Tuesday and could be called in again if needed. Thomas says fire officials want to get the fire put out because the area is heavily traveled by tourists starting this time of year. The cause of the fire is being investigated.
