Garage fire causes heavy smoke damage to Boise home

BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - The Boise Fire Department responded to a garage fire Wednesday afternoon in the 2700 block of North Christine Street.

Firefighters say when they arrived at the home, smoke and flames could be seen on the outside wall of the garage.
