The Loveridge Fire was officially contained Tuesday evening, but not before it torched 38,645 acres of land in and around the Bruneau Sand Dunes State Park, according to the Bureau of Land Management.

The fire started Monday due to lightning about eight miles southeast of Bruneau. As of Wednesday, the BLM no longer had resources out on scene. The fire was fueled by brush and grass and did not threaten any structures.
