Gooding Home Damaged by Fire
Gooding, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) - Gooding and Wendell fire crews spent most of the night on the scene of a house fire. Gooding Fire Chief Brandon Covey said the home is in the 700 block of 8th Avenue East in Gooding.
The fire appears to have started in the basement and was quickly contained by the crews, but had burned through the floor and into the home causing significant damage to the structure and contents. No one was at home when the fire started. It was reported at 10:22 p.m. Tuesday and crews were on the scene until about 8:30 a.m. Wednesday.
Chief Covey said the blaze doesn’t appear to be suspicious in nature but called for the State Fire Marshall to investigate. That investigation is underway, Covey said. The value of the loss has yet to be determined.
