Jul. 19—Fire crews in Boise responded to an early morning house fire Monday in the southwest part of the city that injured two people who were inside and a firefighter.
Firefighters were dispatched at around 2:10 a.m. to the 10000 block of West Huntwood Drive and found a one-story house on fire, according to a news release from the Boise Fire Department. A man and a woman were taken to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries, according to fire officials. As of Monday afternoon, there was not an update on their conditions.
One firefighter was taken to the hospital and received stitches for a cut that happened fighting the blaze.
