Devil’s Hole Fire Burns in Idaho
HAMER, ID – July 26, 2018
Idaho has suffered greatly from wildfires this summer, along with the rest of the Pacific Northwest. Unfortunately however, local media reports, another fire has occurred and burned no less than 5000 acres of land to the north-east of the town of Hamer.
And even though there is no direct threat to any structure, the fire itself is so severe it has been nicknamed the “Devil’s Hole Fire”.
The fire is being fought with 18 engines and watertenders from the BLM, the U.S. Forest Service, the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Central Fire District, South Fremont County, the Hamer and Roberts volunteer fire departments, the Camas Creek Rural Fire Protection Association, a helicopter and two bulldozers. An additional bulldozer and two 20-person handcrews have been ordered.
