High Range Fire is 75-percent contained and winding down

WHITE BIRD, ID - We have some good news tonight (Tuesday) regarding another fire burning in the Craig Mountains and that's the High Range Fire.

The lightning fire is at 4,700 acres and 75-percent contained at this time. And if all goes as planned, crews will be leaving the area on Thursday.

"Today we're winding down," said Brian LaMoure. "The fire has only increased about 69-acres over yesterday. So we're starting to rehabilitate the fire lines that has begun and will continue for a little bit."

Heat detecting devices were used around structures to find any remaining heat. All stage three evacuations have been lifted.
