WILDER — Four fire agencies responded to a large hop shed fire on Peckham Road in Wilder Sunday afternoon, according to Canyon County Dispatch.

The call came in around 5:15 p.m.

“I saw flames coming up over the top of the building,” witness Dan Leavell of Greenleaf said. “... The flames were spilling out at that point (around 5:30 p.m.).”

Leavell said he was concerned about nearby homes.

“We drove by and the heat was really intense. … There were homes probably 30 feet away from the structure.”

The barn-like building is likely used to store hops from nearby fields.

Wilder, Parma, Caldwell and Homedale fire departments responded. No reports about the cause or status of the fire were immediately available Sunday evening.
