HOWE, Idaho -- Crews are cleaning up after an aggressive fire broke out in a small, eastern Idaho town, Tuesday afternoon.

According to the local news station, KIFI, six buildings burned down in the town of Howe, located about an hour-and-a-half outside of Idaho Falls, in Butte County.

Officials say a fire first started in the Howe Cafe, spreading next door, before jumping across the highway to another cafe.

In all, six buildings were lost, and no one was hurt.

Since Howe does not have a fire department, the Idaho National Laboratory was the main agency that responded, but all together 22 units from other cities came out to help.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
