Warm Weather Prompting Magic Valley Wildfires

A fire near Oakley continues to smolder this morning. As of ten o’clock last night the blaze had consumed about 225 acres and was about 80 percent contained. The 222-acre Cottonwood Cave Fire started Tuesday evening at around 6:45.  BLM believes the fire is human caused. About 50 people helped to control the fire last evening including the Logan hot shot team. Crews expect to have the fire completely contained by Friday. 

A fire that began Tuesday evening in the Snake River Canyon near Dierkes Lake was finally put completely out yesterday after fire crews spent the night keeping it under control.  Difficult terrain made fighting the blaze hazardous to fire fighters.  The fire burned about 35 acres and did manage to burn one tree next to a home but no structures were damaged.  Officials are still trying to determine the exact cause of the fire.  They say there were no storms or power lines in the area where the fire started.  Officials say it appears it was human caused but they don’t’ know if it was an accident or set intentionally.

A controlled burn north of Buhl got out of control Wednesday.  Officials say it burned near some structures.  Not much is known about that fire yet.  More details to follow as soon as they are made available.
