ORIGINAL STORY: A fire has been reported on the Jerome side of the Snake River Canyon Tuesday afternoon. The fire is reported to be between the Shoshone Falls and Twin Falls.

There's no official report yet from emergency responders or fire crews, but we can see the smoke from the radio station here at Park Ave and Washington Street in Twin Falls.

What Caused the Fire

Since we don't have an official report yet, here's what is being told to us by members of the community:

  • The fire is near the Quail Ridge Estates in the canyon.
  • You can see the fire from the Perrine Bridge.
  • The fire is at the golf course on the Jerome side.
  • The fire may have been caused by a ball on the lines through the canyon by the fish hatchery that somehow caught fire and started the fire below.
  • There is a possibility that there are 2 separate fires. One at the Golf Course and another at Devil's Corral.
