POCATELLO – The Chinese Peak fire one mile south of Pocatello has grown to 1,546 acres since Sunday night and is now 50% contained.
Fire crews anticipate full containment by 7 p.m. Tuesday. Containment was originally planned for Monday night.
“Full containment has been pushed back to tomorrow evening to ensure there is no remaining heat within brush and juniper along the north edge of the fire,” a news release from the East Idaho Interagency Fire Center says. “Firefighters worked to secure and extinguish heat along the fire perimeter today. The fire did not grow and held within containment lines.”
