Southwestern Idaho wildfire forces evacuations


BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Officials with the Bureau of Land Management say a wildfire that burned about 9 square miles near the southwestern Idaho town of Mountain Home is fully contained.

The Ditto fire started Friday about 12 miles northwest of Mountain Home in grass-covered land, forcing temporary evacuations and road closures. Mallory Eils, a public information officer with the BLM’s Boise Dispatch Center, said the blaze was fully contained Saturday morning.

Eils said the flames burned seven outbuildings in the area, but no homes were harmed. She said crews were working on mopping up the fire Saturday afternoon.
