A lightning-caused fire burning about 4 miles east of Pauline near the border of Bannock and Power counties had grown to 1,550 acres as of Thursday morning. Known as the Lusk Fire, it started at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday. Containment was estimated at 8 p.m. Thursday and the estimated time of control is 8 p.m. Friday. Sarah Wheeler, a fire information officer with the Eastern Idaho Interagency Fire Center, said the fire grew only slightly between Wednesday night and Thursday morning and larger estimates of the acreage burned were the result of more accurate mapping. The fire is not threatening structures. Hand crews using tools will be used to put out hot spots due to the tough terrain. According to a Fire Center press release, Power County Road and Bridge crews were working in the vicinity when lightning struck and attempted to put it out and make a fire line with road graders to minimize agricultural damage. "Propelled by winds from an overhead thunder cell, the fire quickly spread through brush and grass towards the timbered ridge line," the Fire Center said in the press release. "The fire continues to move in a south/southeast direction."Firefighters are battling the Lusk Fire located four miles east of Pauline near the border of Bannock and Power counties.Current federal resources deployed to the scene include six engines, two dozers, air attack, four single engine air tankers, two fire bosses and four large air tankers.
