BOISE, Idaho - Officials with the Boise National Forest say there are 11 new fires burning Wednesday morning following widespread lightning overnight.
Spokesman David Olson says the fires are each smaller than half an acre and crews are being dispatched to put them out.
He says overnight rain that dampened the area will hold the fires in the morning, but they'll become more active as the day heats up.
Fire lookouts spotted the new fires, and Olson says more fires will likely be reported during the day.
