(POCATELLO) – Emergency crews are mopping up the remnants of the Drive-In fire near Pocatello, but Bannock County officials have an investigation on their hands. The Sheriff’s Office suspects the nearly 1,300 acre fire was started by a group of pre-teens. The fire destroyed one home, which experts say lacked a safe “fire barrier” around the property. Bannock County prosecutors will decide if any action will be taken against the kids after reviewing the police report.
