Old Ahsahka Fire 41% Contained

(Orofino, ID) – Fire officials with the Idaho Department of Lands report the Old Ahsahka Fire is 41% contained.

Recent precipitation has brought relief to the four wildland firefighter hand crews who are now focusing on mopping up a 100-foot-wide swath around the perimeter of the fire. The rain has left the fire smoldering.

Due to more accurate mapping, the estimated size of the incident has been reduced to 149 acres.
