09-27-10 Grass Fire burns equipment stored in field

    Boise, Sept. 27, 2010 - A Boise Fire Command Officer en route to a second alarm fire at a west Boise apartment complex noticed a column of smoke rising from an area just south of the city. It turns out a field was on fire, a fire that had not yet been reported to fire dispatch, near several homes and businesses off Gowen Rd & Henry Street.

    Firefighters arrived and found the grass field on fire. Crews put the flames out quickly. The fire covered nearly an acre and destroyed a fence, some tires, a large air compressor on a trailer and a car. No structures were threatened. 

    Fire investigators are on scene. At this time the cause is undetermined.
