BOISE -- The Bureau of Land Management, along with several other agencies, responded to the Ditto Fire in Elmore County Friday night.
The fire started around 6:50 p.m and quickly took off, burning nearly 6,200 acres near the Mayfield area.
Neighbors said it was windy at the time the fire started, but it died down, making it easier for fire crews to fight the fire.
Homes were evacuated along Mayfield Road, but their tenants were allowed back in by late Friday night. It is unknown at this time how many homes had to be evacuated.
The fire burned seven buildings, including barns, garages and sheds. The flames were dangerously close to homes, but didn't destroy any.
Mallory Eils with BLM said there were eight BLM engines, two Forest Service engines, two dozers, one water tender working on the fire, in addition to other resources from other agencies. Air resources responded in the morning after being grounded through the night.
The Forest Service, Mountain Home Rural Fire Department, Mountain Home Fire, and Oasis Volunteer Fire Department also responded.
Firefighters were able to contain the fire around 7:30 Saturday morning. Firefighters intended to remain on scene for most of the day Saturday to make sure the wind didn't flare up any hot spots.
Eils said the fire was human caused, but there is no word yet on exactly what caused the fire.
