Eagle Police look for vandals who broke into home and caused a gas line fire

Eagle Police are looking for whoever vandalized a home in the 400 block of N. Stierman Way early Monday morning — and started a fire when they broke a gas line in the garage.

The damage to the home, which is for sale, is significant. The vandals broke appliances, smashed mirrors and pictures, and damaged furniture inside.

Eagle police were sent to the home just after 9 a.m. Monday — a short time after a realtor discovered the damage.

It appears the vandals got inside the home sometime between late night Sunday and early Monday morning by kicking in a door on the garage. At some point, whoever broke in damaged a gas line inside the garage.

When Eagle Police arrived and checked out the home, they noticed flames coming from the garage and called Eagle Fire.

Eagle fire crews put out the blaze before it could spread to the rest of the home.

If that fire had gone undetected for much longer, it would have likely spread to the rest of the home, fire officials said.

No one was home at the time of the break-in.

Anyone with information should call Ada County dispatchers at 377-6790.
