Fire crews respond to 150-acre grass fire SE of Boise

BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - Fire crews responded to a grass fire that was burning southeast of Boise near Blacks Creek Reservoir Friday evening.

The Bureau of Land Management says the fire was estimated at about 150 acres in size as of Friday night.

Both BLM and Boise firefighters responded.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

BLM says the 2013 fire season is starting earlier than normal because of unusually dry fuels and lack of winter precipitation.
