Nampa firefighters were called to a building fire in the 700 block of 14th Ave South just before 8 p.m. Wednesday, according to Nampa Deputy Fire Chief Doug Strosnider.
The fire was a house that had been converted into four residences. Strosnider said the fire appears to have started outside one of the lower units and spread up to one of the second floor units.
"There was quite a bit of smoke and fire when they arrived," Strosnider said. Three engines and a truck were dispatched to the scene.
The six residents who live in the building had evacuated when firefighters arrived, and no one was injured. Firefighters went into the building to bring out residents' dogs.
Strosnider said the fire damage was limited to the exterior and roof, the estimated cost to repair it is about $70,000. Property inside was covered up to protect it. A fire investigator arrived at the scene around 9 p.m.
The residents of the building are temporarily displaced. They will receive assistance from the Nampa Fire Department's burnout fund.
