GARDEN CITY -- A man has been taken to the hospital after he was pulled from a burning mobile home in Garden City Thursday afternoon.

The fire was reported near the  intersection of Remington and 52nd streets by the Fairgrounds at 1:34 p.m. According to Boise Fire, a neighbor spotted the blaze and called 911. 

Boise Fire spokeswoman Tammy Barry said the condition of the man found inside the burning home is unknown. He was transported to a local hospital by ambulance.
