Agreement reached in firefighter's death

Officials from an Idaho firefighting organization and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration reached a settlement regarding citations and fines levied after a firefighter was killed on the Steep Corner Fire last summer.

The Orofino-based Clearwater Potlatch Timber Protective Association was managing the fire that started on industrial timber land and spread to the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forest.
