Investigators are still trying to determine the cause of a fire that burned part of a shop and singed a home on South Five Mile in Boise on Monday.

No one was injured in a fire late Monday morning on the 7200 block of South Five Mile in Boise. Boise firefighters were still working to determine how it sparked.

Flames damaged part of the house and a nearby shop, said Boise Fire Capt. Noel Rios.

“Crews were able to keep the fire from extending into the home itself. It was already in the involved in the garage, but they basically contained it to just the roof,” Rios said.

Ada County Sheriff’s deputies, who were in the area on an unrelated matter, saw the smoke. Bystanders told the deputies there might be people in the home, according to sheriff’s department spokesman Patrick Orr. Deputies entered the house and got at least two woman out before firefighters arrived, Orr said.

Four engines and two trucks responded to the home south of Lake Hazel Road, near the Christine Donnell School of the Arts.
