Two fires that damaged three houses in Southwest Boise last Friday were caused by improper disposal of fireworks, a spokesperson for the Boise Fire Department told the Idaho Statesman. Boise fire crews responded to a large blaze at 5:46 a.m. Friday and found heavy fire coming from one house after already extending to a neighboring house in the 4500 block of Cochees Way, the department said on social media. The Ada County Sheriff’s Office evacuated nearby residents, and firefighters knocked down the fire before it spread to any additional structures. It did extensive damage to both houses, though. The Boise Firefighters Local 149 Burnout Fund is supporting the displaced occupants, according to the social media post.
