Wildfire Destroys Several Houses in Idaho
BOISE – August 13, 2018
The Bofer Canyon fire, one of the most sever of the season, has destroyed no less than 5 houses in the state of Idaho, local media reports.
The fire is now 85 percent contained in the county, with some smoldering areas still within the city limits, officials said during a Sunday afternoon news conference. Firefighters continue to monitor the blaze to make sure it doesn’t spread.
Currently, there are no evacuations in effect.
The fire drew hundreds to the Canyon Lakes and Inspiration Estates neighborhoods Sunday, many stopping around the destroyed homes on Ely Street. Firefighters continued to douse the brush leading to a destroyed garage.
