Fire burning south of Kuna ‘knocked down’ late Tuesday

A fire burned about 30 acres in the Kuna Butte area late Tuesday night. “It’s all been knocked down,” Boise BLM Fire spokesman Jared Jablonski told the Statesman at about 10:15 p.m.

He said he expected firefighters from the BLM, Kuna and other local agencies to have the fire contained and controlled Wednesday.

Kuna Fire Chief Phil Roberts told KBOI-Channel 2 that the fire came within a mile of structures in the area. Wind gusts made fighting the blaze challenging.

The fire was reported at 8:18 p.m., according to the Pulse Point app. The location listed was 2401 Kuna Mora Road.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
