The house is located on Millstream Way off Chinden Boulevard.
Boise Battalion Chief Tom Pawek says when his crew arrived there was heavy flames and smoke coming out of the side of the house. He thinks the fire may have started on the outside and moved to the interior.
Neighbors say no one was home at the time although the owner of the home showed up outside as firefighters were working the fire.
The chief says there was no injuries to any crews and they were able to get the flames out quickly.
