Fire crews fully contain CCC fire in Cataldo

UPDATED: Thu., Aug. 15, 2019, 9:56 a.m.

Firefighters on Thursday fully contained a 450-acre wildfire in Cataldo, Idaho, about 30 miles southeast of Coeur d’Alene, according to a news release from the Idaho Department of Lands. Burning fuel from inside the containment lines will still cause smoke to drift into the air, but it is not a threat for spreading the fire, according to the news release.

Flash Flood Watch issued for area; thunderstorms expected in Spokane

UPDATED: Sat., Aug. 10, 2019, 4:45 p.m.

Heavy rain is coming to Spokane and the Inland Northwest Saturday and Sunday, bringing the chance of flash floods and lightning that could start wildfires despite the rain. Slow moving thunderstorms will have the potential to produce very heavy rain late this afternoon and into the evening hours over Northern Washington and portions of North Idaho. If heavy rain occurs over a recent burn scar or other steep terrain, life threatening flash flooding may result.
