Natty Vaughn doesn't have to imagine it. The debris is right out her front door.
"It's really kind of upsetting," she said. "You just walk outside and that's what you see, all you see. That disaster. I just wish it was gone."
And Sarah Fuhriman is just across the street.
"Well, it's kind of an eye sore," she said. "For sure."
Clearly there's a lot to clean up. The fire turned the house into a mountain of rubble and we were wondering just when that clean up is going to begin.
It probably won't be right away.
The fire department's through with its investigation, listing the official cause as undetermined.
But the City of Boise's building department say it usually takes some time to settle insurance claims in these cases. (The city says the owners of the house live in Washington state, by the way. We were unable to contact them to see what they're planning.)
Still, if it drags on too long, and presents a hazard, the city can take action through its Abatement of Dangerous Buildings code.
So, at least for the time being, Natty Vaughn will continue to have a window with a ruinous view.
