Evacuation planned for Pine, Featherville

Here's a news item from the Associated Press: BOISE, Idaho (AP) ― Fire managers are trying to gather residents of two small central Idaho towns to discuss evacuation plans as the Trinity Ridge wildfire grows closer. The Great Basin National Incident Management Team announced that a meeting would be held at 10:30 Wednesday morning at the Pine Senior Center to discuss evacuation plans for Featherville and Pine with residents. The Trinity Ridge fire is burning on about 100 square miles just 7 miles from Featherville, and it's showing extreme fire behavior, with embers lighting new blazes far from the main body of the flames. Campers in the area have already been evacuated, and officials are warning residents of Atlanta to evacuate if they have respiratory health problems.
