BOISE -- An inflatable bounce house at Julia Davis Park exploded Saturday, injuring six children.

Ada County Paramedics and Boise Fire Department responded to the park. They say the children were found trapped inside the bounce-house, with the walls folded in on top of them.

But paramedics say the children's injuries were minor and that they were able to treat and release them on scene.

"I don't know the exact number, but there were many, many children in there," said Jake Oven, Field Supervisor at Ada Paramedics. "In my 17 years in the EMS, this is the first time I've responded on a bounce-house explosion."

More than anything, paramedics told KTVB that the kids were shaken up and scared.
