SWAN VALLEY — The Swan Valley and Ammon Fire Departments rushed to a morning cabin fire along the banks of the Palisades Reservoir Monday.

Ammon Fire Captain Jon Molbert tells a call came in around 7:30 a.m. that the cabin was fully engulfed in flames. A neighbor says the fire was on a private road between Lakeview Drive and Ruud Drive off of Highway 26.

Everyone was able to evacuate the home and no injuries were reported, according to Molbert.

The remoteness of the cabin, icy roads and lack of fire hydrants caused some issues in fighting the blaze. The Ammon Fire Department assisted the Swan Valley Fire Department by sending a water tender and a chief to the fire.
