Boise and U.S. Bureau of Land Management firefighters took just 15 minutes to control a small brushfire in the 8400 block of Federal Way in east Boise, near Micron Technology. No structures were involved, but firefighters asked that traffic be diverted on Federal Way and Eisenman Road.
The fire was reported shortly before 4 p.m. and had burned about one acre when firefighters arrived. Boise firefighters were on the scene first and asked for a BLM brush truck and water tender to assist in containing the fire.
By 4:10 p.m., firefighters said they had the blaze under control.
