PHOTOS: Multiple fires broke out in Payette on Tuesday, one of which burned a home to the ground and killed two family dogs in the process. The Payette Fire Department reports that just minutes after the structure fire they received a call for a grass fire in the area. Resources were stretched thin, but both fires were contained with help from New Plymouth Fire Protection District, Ontario Oregon Fire and Rescue, and Fruitland Fire Department. The Payette Fire Department says fireworks did not cause the fire, though the cause of the structure fire has not been released yet. One dog that was rescued from the fire is in the ICU at a local animal hospital. The Payette Fire Department relies on volunteers to help protect the community and reminds viewers that they always need volunteers.
