BLACKFOOT — Police are investigating after a car caught on fire and exploded in Blackfoot Tuesday night.

Shortly after 11 p.m., firefighters and officers went to the 200 block of Spruce Street for the report of a car fire, Blackfoot Police Capt. Gordon Croft tells EastIdahoNews.com. When first responders arrived, they found a white Ford sedan engulfed in flames.

At some point, the car exploded, Croft says, and neighbors living several blocks away report hearing a loud boom.

No one was injured and the incident remains under investigation.
