Residents near the Rail Canyon fire said they were worried about their homes after they were forced to leave Friday.
"It's scary. Fire is devastating and to lose everything... After I left I thought of the things I should've grabbed -- the real personal family things," said resident Colleen McDaniel.
Fire crews worked overnight to maintain the 800 acre fire burning south of Springdale, officials said Saturday morning. Fifty homes have been evacuated and one home was confirmed lost, as well as several out buildings. Officials said they do not have the fire contained yet.
"The flames were going up the left side, it was going through the middle of the valley, going all the way up the mountain. Within 10 minutes it traveled at least 50 feet. Actually it looked kind of like a volcano," said McDaniel.
Officials said the fire was started by fireworks Friday afternoon around 2:35 p.m.. Firework displays in Loon Lake, Deer Lake and Suncrest were all canceled Saturday night.
Shortly before Noon on Saturday, Stevens County announced a ban on all open burning in unincorporated areas of the county.
The Red Cross set up an emergency shelter in Springdale to help those affected by the Rail Canyon fire.
