(IDAHO FALLS, ID)  —  Fire did extensive damage to a house, trailer and a car in the 11-hundred block of Bingham Ave. in Idaho Falls Thursday morning.   Firefighters were called to the scene just after 9:30 this morning, and found the home ablaze.  Fire crews tried to keep the fire from spreading to the home next door, and while the fire did not spread, it did do severe damage in melting the siding.   The resident of the home, Lindey Adams was in the home at the time, and told investigators that her 5-year old son woke her up after smelling the smoke.   Witnesses, including Adams, claimed the flames were seen over the tall trees in the neighborhood at its height.  No word on the extent of the damage done.  Officials have not released the cause of the fire, but neighbors claim they heard some type of explosion.   The fire is still under investigation.   No one was injured.
