TWIN FALLS, Idaho -- The Clover Creek fire was reported to South Central Idaho Interagency Dispatch Center around 5 p.m. on Aug. 4. Three Creek Rangeland Fire Protection Association (RFPA), Twin Falls District (TFD) BLM engine crews, along with several aircraft worked to construct containment lines around the fire last night. Dozers were able to complete lines on either side of the fire and are currently reinforcing some areas of the line where the fire could spread. Crews are facing challenging access as they mop up hot spots in heavy brush. Aircraft along with Three Creek RFPA resources are no longer on scene.
