One man was bitten by a dog when he and another neighbor forced entry into a burning modular home Wednesday to rescue two canines as a three alarm fire broke out at Harris Ranch east of Boise.
Dense black smoke could be seen for miles, leading some to believe the fire was fueled by more than typical building materials.
Because of the intense fire as well as the 90 degree temperatures, extra fire crews were sent to the scene to relieve those battling the flames. One of the double-wide modular homes was destroyed and two others were damaged.
