WEIPPE, ID - Meanwhile near Weippe, the Incendiary Creek Fire has grown to 900 acres and remains at zero-percent containment at this time.

Public Information Officer Jennifer Costich said that efforts to establish containment lines around the fire Thursday were substantial, but they're not reporting any containment until they can secure the perimeter.

Thirteen residents have been evacuated as homes are threatened by the growing blaze. Costich said they're closely monitoring the fire lines as thunderstorms roll through their region over the next few days.
