This pile of melted plastic was a portable outhouse at Indian Lakes Golf Course before someone set fire to it.


Ada County sheriff’s deputies are looking for whoever lit a plastic portable outhouse on fire near the fifth hole of the Indian Lakes Golf Course over the weekend.

The portable outhouse was destroyed, reduced to a mound of smoldering, melted plastic.

The fire was reported just after 5:30 p.m. Sunday by a neighbor who saw flames coming from the middle of the golf course, located in the Cole/Amity neighborhood south of Boise. Fire crews arrived and put out the fire.

The outhouse was valued at $800.
