by


Firefighters from multiple agencies raced to the North Idaho's Silverwood Theme Park in Athol on Sunday afternoon. That's when they battled a blaze that had started in one of the theme parks bathrooms on the northeastern side of the park.

The area needed to be evacuated and it was not immediately clear what caused the fire. 

KREM-TV reports that by the time Silverwood reopened four hours later, four attractions at the park's Boulder Beach Water Park had to remain closed.
