GARDEN VALLEY, Idaho - A lightning-caused series of wildfires burning in the Boise National Forest have been contained, officials announced Sunday.

The Whiskey Complex burned a total of 9,448 acres since it started two weeks ago.

Crews are now patrolling and mopping up on the Wash Fire. The Grimes fire is also contained, but crews were expected to do some interior burning Sunday to eliminate some unburned fuels inside the fire line.

All voluntary evacuation notices have been lifted, but some area closures remain in effect.

The fire burned 270 acres about 14 miles northwest of Boise in the Wildhorse Creek drainage. Crews have a line around the fire and were mopping up 300 feet in from the perimeter Sunday.
