IDAHO FALLS – A home in Bonneville County was destroyed after catching fire Friday afternoon.
It happened in the 6000 block of Foxrun Drive and was reported just after 2 p.m., according to a news release from the Idaho Falls Fire Department. A neighbor reported there was smoke and large flames coming from the house and they didn’t know if anybody was inside.
Firefighters confirmed no one was inside shortly after arriving. They had most of it out by 2:30 p.m.
The fire spread from the back of the home, deck, garage, and then to the attic, roof, and throughout most of the upstairs living spaces. There was smoke damage throughout the home.
The cause of the fire has not been determined. No one was hurt.
“Due to the extensive damage, approximately $350,000, the homeowner was displaced from the home but was able to make arrangements for a temporary place to stay. Chaplains from the Law Enforcement Chaplaincy of Idaho were dispatched to provide assistance to the homeowner,” the news release says.
The IFFD responded with four engines, two ambulances, the ladder truck and battalion chief. The Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office assisted as well.
