Idaho Highway 95 will remain closed in both directions at Sheep Creek near Riggins, after a rockslide covered the road and left the remaining hillside too unstable to safely reopen the road.

If you're looking for milepost 420, you won't find it in Idaho.

Idaho transportation officials say the mile marker has been replaced with 419.9 signs to curb thieves eager to own a number associated with marijuana enthusiasts.

Turns out, Idaho isn't alone in this problem. States like Washington and Colorado have also replaced 420 signs with 419.9 after consistently having to replace them after thefts by supposed sticky-fingered stoners.

A wildfire in southwestern Idaho, fanned by shifting winds and numerous storm cells, grew twelve times in size over a 24-hour span to 123 square miles by early Wednesday.

The fire about 40 miles southwest of Boise closed U.S. Highway 95 that connects Marsing, Idaho, with Jordan Valley, Ore.

Some 200 firefighters backed by about a dozen aircraft as well as fire engines and bulldozers are attacking the blaze in grassland and sagebrush.

There are no reports of injuries or structures lost in the sparsely populated area. The fire is 20 percent contained.
