The U.S. Forest Service’s Law Enforcement and Investigation Team is looking for information related to the cause of a two-acre fire that was detected on Tuesday near the Priest Lake Ranger District Office.

Forest Service officials stationed in a nearby lookout tower saw the smoke and reported it to the Coeur d’Alene Interagency Dispatch Center at approximately 10:15 a.m. The fire appears to be human-caused, based on the evidence collected on scene. Anyone with information related to the cause of the fire is encouraged to contact the Hazard Creek Fire Investigator at (208) 274-3331.
