The child - from Elmore County, located between Twin Falls and Boise - is only the fifth person to be infected with the bacterial disease in Idaho since 1940, the Idaho State Journalreported.

It is most commonly transmitted through fleas, which contract the disease from rodents.

How is plague spread to humans?
- Keep fleas off your pets by applying flea-control products.
All pet food and water should be kept somewhere where wild animals or rodents can't have access.
Store hay, wood and compost piles as far as possible away from your home. In most cases, there is a painful swelling of the lymph node in the groin, armpit or neck areas. Cats with plague pneumonia can give it to people.
