Crews making progress on wildfire northwest of Burley

KIMAMA, Idaho - Crews are making progress on a wildfire burning in a remote area of southcentral Idaho.

The Crestview Fire was first reported just after 8:30 a.m. Monday. It burned 1,700 acres of grass, brush and juniper trees before crews contained it shortly before 7 p.m.

BLM spokesperson Kelsey Brizendine said that crews initially had trouble accessing the fire - which was in a remote area northwest of Burley - due to rough terrain.

The fire is expected to be controlled by 6 p.m. Tuesday.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
