Fire dept. burns down house
The massive house fire seen burning near Enderby was set intentionally, by the local Fire Department.
Rick Wilson at the Enderby fire hall said the owner of the property "wanted the house removed, and asked us to burn it down."
By 7:30 p.m. ash was settling on the ice cream of nearby residents and the house was fully engulfed.
Fighting the blaze is training for the 24 person volunteer department.
