A fire at True Paintball Adventure Park in Boise on Friday night left one building a total loss, Boise Fire Department said.

A building at True Paintball Adventure Park in Boise is a total loss after a late-night fire, according to Boise Fire Department spokeswoman Char Jackson.

“Upon arrival, there were 60- to 70-foot flames coming from the structure,” Jackson told the Statesman.

Investigators have not yet determined a cause for the fire, which happened around 11:30 p.m. Friday. No one was injured in the fire.

Jackson said thanks to the debris and obstacles used as part of the paintball course, it was more difficult for investigators to determine a cause and evaluate damage.

The fire, at 3131 W. Harvard St., was visible from the Boise Airport in the night sky.
