Fires destroy Pocatello homes
Fires occurred at two residences over the weekend in Pocatello.
The Idaho State Journal reports a mobile home was destroyed Saturday afternoon. Pocatello Fire Department Battalion Chief Tom Sanford says a man was asleep inside but managed to escape with singed hair. He was treated and released.
Later that afternoon, dozens of residents of an apartment building were evacuated when a fire broke out in one of the residences.
The fire was contained to the apartment and nobody was injured.
Elsewhere in Idaho on Monday, authorities said, a fire started beneath a Caldwell mobile home when the owners tried to warm frozen pipes with a heater.
Firefighters tell KBOI-TV that no injuries were reported but the home was destroyed.
The causes of the fires are under investigation.
