STANLEY, Idaho (AP) - Firefighters in central Idaho have contained an 80-acre wildfire burning about 10 miles south of Stanley and expect to have it controlled on Sunday.

Gold Fire spokeswoman Julie Thomas says crews succeeded in getting a line around the fire Friday morning despite flames moving into downed lodgepole pine.

She says three hotshot crews along with six engines and two water tenders are working within the perimeter of the fire to make sure it’s out.

U.S. Forest Service Road 210 remains closed.

Thomas says there have been no injuries or damage to structures from the fire that started Tuesday.

The cause of the blaze remains under investigation.
