The 129 acre Trestle Creek Fire is 100% contained. Fire crews will rehabilitate fire lines by installing waterbars to prevent erosion and will continue to monitor the fire's perimeter and extinguish hotspots along the fire's edge.

Fire resources will be traveling along the river corridor and motorists are asked to use caution when driving HWY55. The Cabarton Road boat launch is open and boaters along the river should not stop in the burned area.

Management of this fire is changing from the Type 3 Team to the Southern Idaho Timber Protective Association (SITPA) at 6 AM, Tuesday, July 31, 2018. The number of resources will be reduced to meet the needs of monitoring and mop-up.

The fire was reported on Monday, July 23, just before 5 P.M. It started about four and a half miles north of Smith's Ferry on the bank of the North Fork of the Payette River.
