Family, Six Dogs Displaced After House Fire

Posted By on Wed, Oct 23, 2013 at 11:24 AM

Six dogs and a woman were rescued from a house fire at a single family residence on the 600 block of South Gamay Lane Oct. 22 at around 6 p.m.

Boise Firefighters arrived to the house as smoke billowed from under the eaves and flames were seen in the kitchen. Firefighters from the Sixth Battalion used four engines and a ladder truck to quickly extinguish the fire. An adult woman and six dogs were at the house during the time of the fire. They were safely rescued.

Due to the significant smoke damage, the family was unable to sleep in their home last night.

Disaster volunteers from the American Red Cross were on the scene to help the family who were foster parents for six dogs. Red Cross caseworkers provided the family with emergency funds for their immediate needs. The family will be staying three nights in a local motel. ARC volunteers were able to find a motel that would house three dogs and a veterinarian that would care for the other three.
