Crews contain 15-acre grass fire in Boise Foothills

The fire burned Tuesday night above Warm Springs Road near Council Springs, according to the Boise Fire Department.

BOISE, Idaho — Crews with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Boise Fire Department successfully contained a grass fire that broke out Tuesday evening in the Boise Foothills. 

The fire, now referred to as the Homestead fire, burned 15 acres above Warm Springs Road near Council Springs, according to a new estimate from the BLM on Wednesday. Early estimates Tuesday night put the fire's size at anywhere from 5 to 25 acres.

At about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, Boise Fire said the grass fire was moving away from the city and no structures were threatened.

The cause of the fire was suspected to be a holdover from a lightning strike, however, an investigation by BLM revealed the fire was human-caused.
