BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Firefighters in the central Idaho resort area of Ketchum and Sun Valley have the Beaver Creek Fire 90 percent contained and many are heading off to other fires. Fire spokeswoman Meghan Stump says firefighters on Sunday worked to finish putting in containment lines on the 173-square-mile blaze.

She says rehabilitation work has also started with crews working to restore dozer lines. About 770 personnel remain assigned to the lightning-caused blaze that started Aug. 7.

About 50 miles west the tiny mountain town of Atlanta remained under evacuation orders Sunday because of the 25-square-mile Little Queens Fire that is 2 percent contained. About a mile of control line has been built on the north side of the community. Nearly 400 people are assigned to fight that blaze.
