TWIN FALLS — Smoke was thick and the sound of fire alarms rang out Thursday night in northwest Twin Falls as a home burned, displacing a family.
The fire was reported at 8:16 p.m. at 909 Arrow Wood Court, an emergency dispatcher said.
The cause and origin of the fire were unknown Thursday night.
Smoke and flames were visible in the neighborhood, and firefighters had Arrow Wood Court blocked off.
Firefighters sprayed water around the garage door frame, which appeared to be charred.
The house is on the corner of Grandview Drive and Arrow Wood Court on the corner lot of a cul-de-sac.
Neighbors watched from their front porches and nearby sidewalks as emergency responders put up yellow caution tape around Arrow Wood Court.
There was a vehicle parked in the driveway and the sound of fire alarms could be heard from inside the house.
Amira Duheric, who lives down the street, and a few other neighbors were standing outside watching.
She said her family was putting up decorations when her husband called her to come outside.
The front side of the house was engulfed in flames, Duheric said, it looked like they quickly jumped to the back side of the structure and the roof.
“It keeps spreading,” she said.
Emergency responders were on the scene very quickly, she said, and she didn’t see any of the occupants at the house.
No occupants were in the home, a city dispatcher said.
