(POCATELLO, ID) – Crews in Pocatello responded to a small wildfire in the Mink Creek area Saturday. The fire, which caused the closure of a section of Mink Creek Road, did not threaten any homes and quickly burned itself out within two hours. Difficult terrain made it hard for crews to reach the fire, but once officials coordinated efforts with ATVs, dousing efforts ran smoothly. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
