BOISE, Idaho — Boise Fire responded to a fire just after 2 a.m. Wednesday on North Eldorado Street. Two sheds, a pine tree and a fence caught on fire after a wind storm.

The tree in the backyard near the sheds was close to a high volt power line and the homeowner saw the tree on fire before the sheds caught on fire. Due to the wind fanning the flames, two homes were threatened and Boise Police evacuated the homes. The fire was knocked down quickly and neither home was damaged.

Boise Fire is still working to find a definitive cause to the fire.
