A wildfire in the foothills east of Boise today is up to an estimated 200 acres, authorities report, but so far, winds have been moving the fire away from any homes or other structures. It's up in the hills behind the new East Junior High; this photo was provided by the Boise Police Department and the unified command at the fire from the Boise Fire Department and the U.S. Bureau of Land Management; firefighters have aggressively targeted the fire today with helicopters and ground crews.
