Posted: Updated:
KOOTENAI COUNTY, Idaho -

Firefighters continue to battle the Rampike Fire in north Idaho and the list of road closures as a result if long. 

The fire is burning about a mile east of Shoshone Creek and is just over 2000 acres in size. It is burning in rugged terrain which is making it difficult for firefighters to get to. Officials believe it was started by lightning. It is zero percent contained and has shut down a long list of roads for both the Kootenai and Idaho Panhandle National Forests. 

According to authorities, the following roads are closed. 

"On the Kootenai National Forest, the closure begins at the Forest Boundary on East Fork Elk Creek Road #2273, Then up to the mouth of Butte Creek, from Butte Creek to the State Line, then southwesterly along the State Line to Porcupine Pass. From Porcupine Pass, down Forest Service Road (FSR) #151 to the junction with FSR #2228, then down Rabbit Run Creek to FSR #151, then across FSR #151 and up Fire Creek to the junction with FSR #2244, then along FSR # 2244 to the junction with FSR #2710, then above FSR #2710 to the junction with Pilgrim Creek Road #149. All lands above FSR #2710 above (south and west) of the road are closed, though FSR #2710 will remain open. Also closed is the area from the junction of FSR #2710 and FSR #149 northwesterly along the ridgeline south of Brush Gulch to FSR #2273 then down FSR #2273 to the Forest Boundary.
