Fire destroys rural home
ROBERTS — A large fire completely destroyed a Jefferson County home early Friday morning.
Local firefighters were dispatched to the home at 58 N. 3167 East around 2:15 a.m., Roberts Fire Chief Jered White told EastIdahoNews.com.
A woman, the home’s sole occupant, got out of the house safely before firefighters arrived. When firefighters got to the house, White says, the home was fully engulfed in flames.
Twenty-five to 35 firefighters from the Roberts Fire District, Central Fire District and Ammon Fire Department battled the blaze.
The fire was mostly knocked down by 4:30 a.m.; however, as of 10:30 a.m., firefighters were still working to extinguish hot spots.
The cause of the fire has not been determined.
