A wildfire north of Cataldo Idaho has closed the popular Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes bike path.

The trail is closed from Cataldo to Kingston. Additionally, boaters have been asked to avoid the lower Coeur d’Alene River from Albert’s Landing to Cataldo.

The 200-acre CCC Fire is burning in dry grass and timber and is 0% contained according to an Idaho Department of Lands news release.

Aircraft are dropping retardant and water and there are two hot shot crews building fire lines alongside five engines and heave bulldozer equipment. Several structures are threatened, although there are no evacuation orders.
