Burning down the house

Hauser Fire, Kootenai County Fire and Rescue participate in burn training

The abandoned house at Pleasant View Road and Highway 53 just east of Hauser Lake Road would have been demolished to make way for the Idaho Transportation Department's Pleasant View interchange project.
