AMMON — A fire damaged significant parts of a backyard and about 100 yards of canal bank before it was put out Tuesday afternoon.

The Ammon and Ucon fire departments responded to a reported fire at a residence just off Eagle Drive. Neighbors called in the fire around 3:30 p.m. and firefighters were able to put out the flames within a couple of minutes of arriving at the scene.

It’s unclear exactly how the fire started or how long it burned before responders received the call. No one was at the home when the fire broke out.

The Ammon Fire Department said the fire burned a pile of tires, the outside of a small shed, burned through a fence and spread around 100 yards down the canal bank behind the residence. A couple of large trees were also on fire when firefighters arrived.

No estimate on damages has been released.
