Two adults were taken to a local hospital with what appeared to be life-threatening injuries after an overnight house fire in Southwest Boise. One firefighter was taken to the hospital and was released with minor injuries, a Boise Fire Department news release said.
The fire department responded to the fire at 2:09 a.m. Monday in the 10000 block of West Huntwood Drive.
“Three engines, one ladder truck, and a Battalion Chief arrived on scene within minutes to find a one-story, single-family home with extensive fire involvement on the front and one side of the home,” said the release. “This incident was upgraded to a full first alarm assignment.”
Two additional engines, a ladder truck, a battalion chief and two units from the Ada County Paramedics joined the response, the release said. The fire destroyed much of the home and a vehicle in the attached carport.
Within three hours after arrival, the fire was controlled, the release said. The cause is under investigation.
