The first fire occurred about 5:23 p.m. Friday evening on South Mistyglen Avenue in southeast Boise, according to a department statement on Twitter. Ada County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the blaze first and fought the fire with a hose until fire department crews arrived, bringing three fire engines, according to the statement. Amid heavy smoke, two dogs escaped the fire, but three more died, according to the statement.
Hours later, just before 7 p.m., the department responded to another, smaller fire at the 13th Street Pub and Grill in Boise’s North End, according to another release. There were no injuries in that fire, but the flames caused a small amount of damage and closed the business for the evening.
Then, about 4:30 p.m. Sunday, crews arrived at a home in north Boise on North 31st Street, according to another Boise Fire Department tweet. One person was “evaluated after breathing a lot of smoke,” according to the statement, but there were no other injuries. Crews kept the fire contained in a single room of the house.
“This fire was accidentally caused by a computer monitor that was pushed up against a paper wall hanging, starting it on fire,” the department’s statement reads.
