Wood River Fire & Rescue Chief Ron Bateman said the fire broke out around 4:39 a.m. Monday on the 100 block of Baseline Road near Bellevue. It wasn’t fully extinguished until around 11:50 a.m. Monday, according to WRFR Chief Bass Sears. Bateman said the fire drew a large mutual aid response "with about 20 firefighters” dispatched from Wood River Fire & Rescue, Carey Rural Fire & Rescue, the North Blaine County Fire District and the Hailey, Ketchum, Bellevue and Sun Valley fire departments after the call came in from Blaine County Emergency Communications.
