Burn Barrel Destroys House, Vehicles


(REXBURG, ID) – An unattended burn barrel caused a fire that destroyed a home and three vehicles south of Rexburg Tuesday. Madison Fire Chief Corey Child said the fire started at around 4 p.m. and quickly got out of hand when sparks lit some weeds nearby. Because of the way the home was structured, crews spent hours trying to fight back the flames. No injuries were reported. Damages are estimated at around $350,000.
