New information: Flames destroy home, garage in Bayview

Official News Release from Timberlake Fire Protection District:

Early this morning at approximately 3:25 a.m. tones were sounded for a fully involved structure fire at 33643 Spruce Street in Bayview, Idaho.

The residents of the home, Roy and Bertha Clanton awoke to sounds coming from a shop/garage in the rear of the property and noticed smoke coming in through windows and then seeing a red glow coming from the shop/garage area.  The Clanton's called 911 who advised them to exit the home immediately which they did after gathering up their two pet dogs.  Although they had smoke detectors in the home, they did not alarm to the amount of smoke entering in through the windows.

Arriving crews found the home, attached garage, large shop/garage in the back and a smaller shed also in the rear of the home on fire with flames involving nearby trees.  A total of three alarms were called bringing fire responders from Timberlake, Northern Lakes, Spirit Lake, Sagle, Coeur d'Alene, and Kootenai County fire districts along with deputies from the Kootenai County Sheriff Department.

The American Red Cross had been called and arrived within an hour to offer assistance to the Clanton's.  Due to several offers and help from neighbors and arriving family members, the Clanton's chose not to take advantage of the Red Cross at this time.

The fire was contained to the original structures though a neighboring shed received some heat damage.  No residents or firefighters were injured in the incident.  The Clanton's had insurance and had made contact with their agent. Destroyed in the incident included several vehicles and at least two boats.

Due to the dangerous conditions and potential for collapse, an excavator was called in to assist with removing of the remaining metal roof.  Timberlake Fire is maintaining a fire watch on the property throughout the day to insure of no rekindle.

BAYVIEW, Id. - An elderly couple in Bayview, Idaho is safe and staying with neighbors after an early morning fire destroyed their home.

The couple tells firefighters they woke up just after 3:00 a.m. to the sound of crackling. They looked out the window and noticed their detached garage was on fire. They then smelled smoke inside their house and quickly evacuated. 
 
A neighbor we spoke to described looking out her window and seeing a "wall of fire." 
 
"I thought it was a forest fire, that was right there, a wall of fire," says Pamela Harper. "The trees were all lit up and there was nothing but just bright in the sky."
 
Firefighters from multiple different agencies responded to the 3 alarm fire. A cause for the fire is still not known but firefighters say they're just glad with all the trees in the area they were able to contain the flames to just the one property.
 
The house, along with the garage, were both destroyed in the blaze. Some vehicles in the garage were also heavily damaged. The couple plans to stay with neighbors while they work out the damages with their insurance company.
