Richfield (ID) Fire Apparatus Destroyed in Preacher Fire

A fire truck owned by Richfield Fire Department has been destroyed by the massive Preacher Fire.

The Blaine County Sheriff’s Office posted several pictures of the burned fire truck on its Facebook page Thursday afternoon.
According to the post, the truck was collateral damage, but no one was injured.

The fire, which is burning through grass and brush southwest of Carey, grew to 33,000 acres Wednesday. The BLM says the fire has been fanned by erratic winds.

No structures have been lost, and at last check, officials were hoping to have the fire contained Thursday evening.
