A Boise family has been displaced after their house caught fire Sunday morning.
Flames broke out at about 9:30 a.m. in the home on West Skycrest Drive.
Firefighters said when crews arrived the fire was aggressive and growing. Most of the flames were in the garage and attic. The garage and the back bedroom of the house are total losses and other areas of the house have significant smoke and water damage.
The family was already out of the house and no one was hurt, firefighters said.
Crews were able to put the fire out rather quickly, however the weather did pose a challenge.
"Wind drives fire, we see it in our wildland fires as well so we had wind that was pushing fire through the attic," Boise Fire Capt. Rob Christensen said. "Once that fire had breached that roof over the garage that wind picked up and started blowing it through the attic which gave us a little bit of trouble, but crews were able to open up the ceiling immediately and get water on that fire."

Multiple engines responded and firefighters from other agencies also assisted.
Investigators are looking into what caused the fire.
The family is receiving assistance from the Boise Burnout Fund.
