Firefighters in eastern Idaho are trying to determine what started a fire that burned down a church.

The fire started this afternoon at the LDS church in Swan Valley.  When firefighters arrived flames were shooting from the building.  Crews were able to contain the fire, but firefighters will remain on scene all night to make sure it does not flare up.

The church was unoccupied when the fire started.  No one was injured.  The cause is still under investigation.
