Residents that we talked with tell KBOI they heard two explosions.

Boise Fire Battalion Chief Jack Ellis tells us “given what we keep in our garages, aerosol cans, propane tanks that type of stuff. Sometimes we get a lot of reports of explosions and it is more of those things that are going off.”

No neighboring homes are at risk. Firefighters are still investigation just what caused the fire.
