The Boise Fire Department was dispatched to a structure fire in the ten thousand block of West Huntwood Dr. in Southwest Boise at 2:09 a.m. Two adults, one male and one female, were transported to a local hospital with what appeared to be life-threatening injuries as a result of the house fire. Currently, there are no updates on their condition.
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. This incident was upgraded to a full first alarm assignment immediately after arrival adding two additional engines, a ladder truck, and Battalion Chief, along with two units from Ada County Paramedics. The fire destroyed most of the home, including a vehicle located in the attached carport. This fire was controlled by crews within three hours of arrival time. One firefighter was taken to a local hospital and received stitches for a laceration and was later released. The cause of this fire is still under investigation.
