BOISE -- The Boise Bureau of Land Management district battled two wildfires Saturday night.
The Castle Fire was burning 15 miles southeast of Murphy in Owyhee County. Lightning sparked this fire around 4 p.m. Saturday.
It burned over 200 acres. The BLM said four engines, two dozers, one water tender and one hot shot crew were able to contain the fire early Sunday morning. Some crews are staying on scene to make sure the area doesn't flare back up.
Lightning also started the Baja Fire, which was burning about two miles southeast of Swan Falls Dam on the north side of the Snake River.
Around 250 acres burned in that fire. Six engines and one dozer were fighting the fire.
BLM said they were able to contain the fire and were on scene Sunday to mop it up.
A BLM spokesperson said they are seeing more fire activity than previous years and that conditions are dry right now.
