GRASMERE, Ida. — From the remote deserts of southwestern Idaho came word Wednesday that the Wickahony Hotel, a century-old stagecoach depot recognized as a national historic site, was destroyed by a wildfire.

Idaho's last remaining stage stop, made of local lava rock, burned Sunday. Crews battling the lightning-ignited fire could not keep the flames from gutting the old hotel and post office, officials said.
