BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Firefighters have contained a wildfire north of Boise.

The Bureau of Land Management says the Dump Fire was contained Friday night after it burned about 425 acres in steep, rough terrain southwest of Horseshoe Bend.

No structures were damaged, however BLM says 8-10 homes were voluntarily evacuated as a precaution Friday evening.

All evacuations have been lifted and residents have been allowed to return to their homes.

The BLM says it expects to have the fire controlled by 5:00 p.m. Saturday. Firefighters will continue extinguishing hotspots and mopping up the perimeter throughout the day.

Crews from the Bureau of Land Management and Idaho Department of Lands are assisting the local firefighters.

Ground crews responding include 5 BLM engines, 2 IDL engines, 1 water tender, and a dozer. A hand crew has also been ordered.

Air crews responding include 1 air attack, 2 helicopters, and a single engine air tanker.

BLM says the fire appears to be human caused and is under investigation.
