(CHALLIS, ID) – Air tankers from California were called in to fight wildfires in central Idaho over the weekend. The Lodgepole fire near Challis has grown to more than 600 acres, and forced the evacuation of a campground Saturday afternoon. More than 100 were evacuated from the Bradley Boy Scout Camp and the Beaver Creek Campground during a blaze near Stanley. Nearly a dozen wildfires are currently burning across the state.
