VIDEO: A woman died after a home in Boise caught fire early Tuesday morning, sending firefighters rushing to the scene.
Crews responded to a home in the 6700 block of Northview Street just before 1:30 a.m. Flames were already severe when firefighters arrived, and it took 15 to 20 minutes to get the fire under control. The home's occupant died at the scene, and one firefighter was treated for a minor injury, said Boise Fire Battalion Chief Terry Theriot.
A dead dog was also found inside the burned house. "We had some extensive damage to some buildings on the backside of this residence and also we had an exposure problem with the advanced fire conditions," he said. "Crews did an incredible job with getting that fire contained to the structure itself that originally started on fire, and no extension to the side houses on either side."
