Boise Fire says a passerby called firefighters reporting flames outside a home on the 1100 block of West El Pilar Drive off Bogus Basin Road.
When fire fighters arrived on scene, they determined that the fire had potential to spread and called for a second alarm. Soon after, however, firefighters knocked down the flames and kept it from spreading from the garage and into the home.
A teen was inside the home sleeping and did not know about the fire, but was not hurt. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
