      Southwest Idaho men cited after roadway bonfire

      KUNA, Idaho (AP) Two southwest Idaho men police say started a bonfire on a city street that melted the pavement are facing a fine of $300 and 10 days in jail.

      Police in Kuna cited 31-year-old Gregory Mcatee and 47-year-old Timothy Cope after responding to an address at about 11 p.m. Saturday to find several people standing around a bonfire in the road in a cul-de-sac.

      Police say Cope told officers he built the fire, and Mcatee said he put his Christmas tree in the fire.

      Ada County Highway District officials estimate the damage at $1,000 and say they will seek reimbursement for repairs.

      Kuna fire crews put out the fire.
