Fire Heavily Damages South Lincoln Home

LINCOLN–(KFOR Apr. 29)–Two people have been displaced, while a dog is okay and a cat remains missing, after a two-alarm fire late Thursday morning at a south Lincoln home.

LFR Captain Nancy Crist tells KFOR News the call came in shortly after 11am from someone in the lot of Hiway Diner at 20th and Highway 2 that saw smoke and flames coming from the garage of a home to the north.  Crist says Engine 4 was on their way back from a training exercise and saw the garage fully involved in fire when they arrived. Posted below are videos taken at the scene from Rachael Miner.

There were no smoke alarms sounding at the time, according to Crist, and one resident was able to get out of the home safely.

Crist also told KFOR News the fire then spread from the garage into the house.  No injuries reported and the cause of the fire, along with damage amounts are still under investigation.
