LOWMAN, Idaho -

A 150-square-mile wildfire burning through timber in central Idaho is continuing its pattern of flaring up in the afternoons.
   
Officials say they expect more of the same Tuesday and are planning burnout operations to try to consume fuel ahead of the fire.
   
The fire burning in remote, mountainous backcountry near Lowman is 47 percent contained but is expected to burn at least until the end of September.
   
About 2,000 firefighters are assigned to the blaze.
   
In eastern Idaho, crews are battling a 15-square-mile wildfire near Idaho Falls that jumped containment lines Monday and forced about two dozen residents to evacuate a subdivision.
   
The Bonneville County Sheriff's Office has told other residents in the area to be alert as the wildfire has the potential to move quickly.
