A 16 unit apartment building in Idaho Falls near Eastern Idaho Technical College experienced a fire this morning at 11:28.
On arrival they started putting out the fire immediately and started searching for any residents. They located one victim, he was unresponsive, but alive. The victim was transported by ambulance to EIRMC for treatment.
Reports say he did receive some burns, but it appeared smoke inhalation was probably the bigger injury. In the process of rescuing the victim a third apartment caught fire.
The fire was then quickly extinguished and further searching was done to confirm that there were no other victims. In total, three apartments were heavily damaged by the fire and multiple others received smoke damage. The damage estimate is $750 thousand dollars and as of this point the cause is still unknown.
