I-84 Between Mountain Home And Boise Now Open
Mountain Home, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) - Interstate 84 between Boise and Mountain Home was closed in both directions for about 4 hours late last night while fire crews battled a brush fire. Bureau of Land Management officials say the Mayfire started under some power lines near Ditto Creak along baseline road around 8pm Thursday. Because of low visibility, the road was closed soon after the fire was started and wasn’t opened until around midnight. Officials say 2497 acres of mostly grass and brush burned. It was contained around 1am Friday and crews are currently in the mop up stage. They expect full control by 8pm Friday.
Idaho State Police Troopers diverted traffic off the freeway at milepost 71 near the Boise Stage Stop and milepost 90 near Mountain Home.
