A strong low pressure is moving into the area and affecting weather. Southeastern Idaho expects to see high winds between 30-45 mph and isolated thunderstorms throughout the weekend. While cooler temperatures and isolated showers will likely decrease fire activity, holdovers from lightning may begin to appear once conditions dry out. Fire managers urge caution as individuals recreate outdoors this Labor Day Weekend. The Henrys Creek Fire reached 100% containment at 10:00 p.m. on September 1, 2016. The last operational period will be today. Fire crews will continue to periodically monitor the fire area. All closures associated with the Henrys Creek Fire are lifted.
