Two range fires burning between Beacon Light and the Gem County line temporarily closed Idaho Highway 16 Tuesday afternoon.
The Ada County Sheriff's Office says it's not clear at this point if structures are threatened by the fast-moving fires. Drivers are encouraged to use caution when driving through the area.
