BANKS, Idaho (AP) - A small wildfire is burning near a subdivision in mountainous central Idaho, but firefighters say the blaze grew less active overnight as temperatures cooled.
The Fraiser Creek Fire kept about 150 firefighters busy Monday morning about five miles east of Banks as it consumed grass and timber.
The Fraiser Creek subdivision, a 40-structure neighborhood, is within about a half mile of the fire.
But crews including those from rural fire departments in nearby communities of Garden Valley and Horseshoe Bend are building a fire line after knocking down flames on that side of the blaze.
They have water hoses installed.
There is no estimate of containment but State Highway 17 is now open, although travelers need to use caution due to the potential of rock fall onto the road.
