Idaho’s Rose Fork Fire cause losses for livestock producers

A big wildfire in Idaho is harming livestock operations.

The Rose Fork Fire has burned nearly 40,000 acres in Idaho’s Sawtooth Basin since it ignited in August.
It has killed some sheep as producers try to move their operation to safety.

The fire is slowing down, right now it is 64 percent contained.

Also, along the Salmon River in the Gem State, cattle losses from the Moose Fire have yet to be determined.
