[ARCHIVED] Higbee Structure Fire - Nov. 2, 2017

Higbee Fire_IFFDOn Nov. 2, 2017 at 4:54 AM, the Idaho Falls Fire Department was dispatched to a structure fire on the 300 block of N. Higbee. 

Ladder 1, engine 2, engine 4, ambulance 1, ambulance 6 and a Battalion Chief responded.  

Upon arrival, crews found a single-wide trailer with heavy smoke coming from the trailer. Firefighters made an aggressive attack on the fire, extinguishing the area around a water heater externally.
