MCCALL, Idaho — A beautiful area near McCall was on fire Wednesday night.

Wildfire officials say the lightning-caused Copeland Fire had burned at least 90 acres in timber on the border of state and federal land near the Shaw/Twin Lakes area.

No structures were threatened as of Wednesday evening, but the Valley County Sheriff closed part of Boulder Lake Road.

Crews were supported by bulldozers and engines, as well as several kind of air tankers and helicopters.
