Fired up, burned down

Many who saw fire devour the house on Ten Mile in Kuna on Saturday  said it was fascinating sight – so much so, in fact, that passersby pulled off all along Ten Mile to watch.

The event was the final training exercise at the home for firefighters from the Kuna Rural Fire District, who’ve been using the site to hone their skills over the past two years.

During a four-day session in late October, the fire district set one blaze after another while  firefighters practiced making entry, locating and removing a 165-pound dummy and bringing the blaze under control while maintaining personal safety and watching out for other crew members.
