Noah Street shed fires

Chubbuck firefighters and police arrive on the scene on Noah Street late Friday morning after a shed behind a house caught on fire. The fire quickly spread to a second shed before firefighters extinguished the flames.

CHUBBUCK — Firefighters extinguished a late Friday morning fire that destroyed one shed and significantly damaged another in a residential neighborhood on Chubbuck’s north side.

The blaze was reported around 11:40 a.m. Friday in a shed behind a house on the 5800 block of Noah Street off Yellowstone Avenue. The flames quickly spread to an adjacent shed on a neighboring property as firefighters arrived.

Chubbuck firefighters extinguished the burning sheds in less than 30 minutes and kept the flames from spreading to nearby homes.

No one suffered any injuries as a result of the fire. The blaze was reported by a Noah Street resident who spotted the first shed burning on a neighboring property and dialed 911.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation by the Chubbuck Fire Department.

Noah Street was temporarily shut down by police because of the fire.

The Fire Department reported that the shed where the fire started was destroyed by the flames but the second shed might be salvageable, though it was significantly damaged.

The contents of the shed where the fire started included wood and tires. The burning tires created thick black smoke that could be seen from miles away during the fire.

The second shed contained hunting supplies and equipment and some of those items were able to be salvaged from the burning structure.

A wooden fence between the two sheds was also scorched by the flames.
