Deputies search for whoever set donation sheds on fire behind Kuna-area church

Kuna police are looking for two teens seen running away from a fire behind the LDS church at 315 E. Deer Flat Road early Sunday morning.

The fire destroyed two storage units behind the church, which were full of donated items for the Deseret Industries Thrift Store. The damage in lost items and the buildings themselves is estimated to be over $23,000.

Ada County dispatchers got a 911 call around 4 a.m. from an 18-year-old man playing Pokemon Go in the parking lot of the church, who reported first hearing sounds behind the church and then seeing what looked like two teenagers running away.

The man told dispatchers he then saw the light of a fire from behind the building, so he drove over, and saw the storage buildings on fire, and called 911.

Kuna police and Ada County Sheriff’s deputies arrived moments later but were not able to find anyone resembling the description of the suspects anywhere in the area.

Kuna Fire crews extinguished the fire, which destroyed both storage units.

Detectives are investigating the case. Anyone with information should call Kuna Police at 577-3860.
