(IDAHO FALLS, ID) – An Idaho Falls man was briefly hospitalized following a house fire Friday night.  Fire officials say Mike Baler is lucky to be alive after he escaped the fire at his home on the 2800 block of East 97th North. The fire, which started in the garage, was likely caused by an ATV battery that was being charged. Baler suffered second-degree burns during the blaze, which was difficult to contain because of propane tanks stored in the garage. The home was a complete loss. Damages are estimated at around $250,000.
