NAMPA, Idaho (AP) - Southwest Idaho officials say illegal fireworks are likely to blame for a fire that destroyed a house in Nampa early Tuesday morning.

Fire Marshal Phil Roberts tells KTVB-TV (https://bit.ly/29fxqbt) that the fire started on the home’s roof at about 1:45 a.m.

Two people inside escaped unharmed before the home became engulfed in flames.

Roberts says the investigation into the cause of the fire is continuing but neighbors report aerial fireworks going off in the area at the time the fire was reported.

Officials provided no damage estimate on the destroyed home.
