According to Boise BLM officials, so far no evacuation orders have been given for an 80-acre fire near Kuna Mora Road.
Kuna Mora Road has reopened west of Pleasant Valley after a roughly hour-long closure due to a 280-acre fire, dubbed the York Fire, that threatened two structures.
The BLM announced in a press release that no structures were damaged and the fire was 70 percent contained as of 7:45 p.m., Thursday. Full containment is expected by 11 p.m. Thursday.
Boise and Kuna fire were on the scene, as well as the BLM.
Seven engines, one helicopter, one air attack, two SEAT planes, one heavy air tanker, two dozers and one water tender were apart of the initial response. A total of 30 people assisted in containment.
According to BLM officials in Boise, no evacuations were ordered.
Grass and sage brush had been burning north of the intersection of Kuna Mora and south Cole roads on state and private lands.
The cause is still under investigation and remains undetermined.
More information will be posted as soon as it becomes available.
