BOISE, Idaho — A Boise restaurant went up in flames Tuesday night.

Fire officials say they responded to Los Mariachis restaurant on Fairview Ave. at roughly 8:18 p.m.

Crews say they found the building full of smoke when they arrived.

Fire officials say fighting parts of the fire was difficult because the roof was not stable. As a result, crews had to fight the flames from outside the building.

Thankfully, no one was inside.

One firefighter injured his knee during the response.

The fire was mostly out after about two hours, but crews continued to work the scene for several hours more.
