Size: Approximately 2400 acres
Location: Two miles south of Red River Hot Springs near Elk City, Idaho
Structures destroyed: 0
Fire management actions: Overnight the fire grew a few hundred acres, still moving east away from structures. Access along FSR505 has been improved, allowing firefighters to construct fire line east of the road to protect structures and infrastructure. Aircraft supported firefighters on the ground with water most of the day. The structure protection group continues working with private landowners on fire prevention activities around homes and businesses on Hot Springs Road. Heavy equipment is working to improve safe access on FSR1166 for future control line construction. Some lightning is expected in the area beginning as early as today and lasting through tomorrow. Thunderstorms may bring winds and potential fire growth.
