WEST RIVERSIDE – Missoula Rural Fire crews are working to control a fully-involved house fire that appears to have heavily damaged a home in West Riverside.

The fire on Zaugg Drive was reported shortly after 3 p.m. Friday, with Missoula Rural firefighters calling for help from as far away as Clinton and Missoula.

The blaze appears to have started in a garage area and spread to the house. The building was fully-engulfed in flames when fire engines arrived, with flames visible from Interstate 90 to the south.

Law enforcement has shut down traffic to the area while fire departments work to control the blaze and keep it from spreading in these hot, dry conditions. There’s no indication of anyone being hurt.

This is a developing story.
