ADA COUNTY, Idaho — A man and a woman have life-threatening injuries after their home caught fire southwest of Boise Monday morning.
The blaze broke out shortly after 2 a.m. at a home on West Huntwood Drive, southwest of Boise near the Boise Ranch Golf Course.
Fire officials say the front and side of the one-story house were on fire when crews arrived. Boise Fire called in two additional engines, a ladder truck, and Battalion Chief, along with two units from Ada County Paramedics.
Two people inside the house, a man and a woman, were pulled from the home and taken to a local hospital with serious injuries. Their current conditions and their names have not been released.
One of the firefighters suffered a cut to his hand at the scene, and was taken to the hospital for stitches before being released.
The blaze destroyed most of the home and a car that had been parked in the garage. It took firefighters three hours to get the fire under control.
“This is going to be a 100% loss. This was a significant fire,” Boise Fire’s Joans Dethman said. “It’s a tragic event. You can see just how destructive it is when you see fires like this.”
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
