Eye On Boise

Two homes damaged, evacuations ordered in Eagle wildfire

A fast-growing wildfire northwest of Boise has damaged two homes in the Skyline Subdivision near State Highway 16 in Eagle, and homes north of Beacon Light Road and west of Highway 55 have been ordered evacuated; an evacuation center has been set up at Eagle High School. Numerous firefighting planes, trucks and brush rigs have been dispatched to the fire this afternoon, which has darkened the skies over Boise with brown smoke. This as there’s also another 100-acre grass fire burning between Boise and Mountain Home, and the Teapot Dome fire, about 10 miles east of Mountain Home, reportedly has expanded to 600 acres and is 60 percent contained. Be careful out there.
