BONNERS FERRY — Three separate wildland fires broke out around the county on Tuesday, April 2, around 4 p.m. Hall Mountain Fire, North Bench Fire, South Boundary Fire, and Paradise Valley Fire Departments all responded to the calls and were able to get them under control before they spread.

“We would like to remind everyone, please keep a close watch on all controlled burns, and be sure to have water and hand tools close by,” stated North Bench Fire on their Facebook page. “Pockets of dry and flashy fuels can turn a controlled burn, into an uncontrolled burn very quickly.”
