Fire officials here in Idaho are anticipating a break in firefighting, especially after rain came with Saturday night's storms. That rain helped drench some fires.

The Boise District Bureau of Land Management said only one small fire start, near Silver City, came out of all that lightning and thunder.

The projected cooler temperatures, along with high humidity, will lend some relief to firefighters as they work to contain some of our area's bigger fires. Some resources are even being let go.

We anticipated the worst from that storm, said Brandon Hampton with the BLM. Fortunately, we received much better weather than we anticipated. The temperatures dropped and we did have some precipitation on some of our fires that really helped the suppression efforts.

Boise BLM officials said firefighters desperately needed to regroup from this past week of triple digit temperatures and numerous fire starts.
