COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho -- Fire crews in North Idaho are fighting a four-acre wildfire 10 miles east of Coeur d’Alene.

The fire is about five miles east of Wolf Creek Lodge and two and a half miles from I-90.

Authorities said the fire started Sunday because of a lightning strike and its burning mixed timber.

The Idaho Department of Lands said 45 firefighters and two helicopters were out Tuesday battling the flames.  There is no official word on how much the fire is contained but officials said lines have been constructed but they have not been tested.

No buildings are threatened by this fire.

Officials said the flames can be seen from Interstate 90 and Wolf Creek Lodge.

No one has been injured because of the fire.
