Forest Service fire crews are on the scene of what’s being called the Twin Fire, burning about ten miles northeast of the intersection of Highway 21 and National Forest System road 268, also known as the Middle Fork Road leading to the town of Atlanta.

The fire is currently at 65 acres and about thirty percent contained, with full containment expected late tomorrow afternoon, said Boise National Forest spokesperson Michael Williamson. 

Investigators are trying to find what caused the fire.

About ninety firefighters are assigned to the fire: three twenty-person crews, two helicopters, three engines, and fire prevention and investigation personnel.

There are currently no road or area closures in place. 

However, all motorists traveling on NFS road 268 are advised to use caution, due to fire personnel and equipment in the area.
