Cape Horn Fire in Bayview
The Cape Horn fire in northern Idaho has destroyed at least six homes and forced about 200 residents in Bayview, a lakeside community, to evacuate as it ballooned to more than 3 square miles Monday.
The blaze started Sunday afternoon and burned through a mix of year-round residences and seasonal homes near the southern shore of Lake Pend Oreille, the state’s largest lake and a recreation and fishing destination. The flames have destroyed other buildings such as boat houses and pump houses in the Bayview area that includes expensive homes, especially next to the water.
