Fires Burning In Southern Idaho
Fire crews continue to battle a handful of wildfires across south central and eastern Idaho that were started by lightning strikes over the weekend. So far, at least three of the blazes are blamed for burning 2,500 acres. The biggest as of Monday afternoon is the Garden Fire southeast of American Falls. That blaze started early Sunday morning and has charred 1,750 acres of public and private crop land. Near Fort Hall, crews are working to contain the Two-and-a-Half fire, which has burned more than 430 acres. The BLM says crews are making significant progress. Crews are also battling the Bingham Point fire burning north of Minidoka.
