(IDAHO FALLS, ID) — A Power Outage in Ammon Wednesday evening left close to 2-thousand residents in the dark. A power pole apparently sparked and caught on fire on S. Skyline in Idaho Falls. The failed pole also caused a fire in a nearby farmhouse basement. Most residents did have their power restored by 8pm. Idaho Falls Power is still investigating the cause of the pole failure. There were no injuries reported.
