Emergency crews responded Monday to a house fire southwest of Lincoln in Martell, Nebraska.

Multiple agencies responded to reports of a fully engulfed home near SW 72nd St. and W Sprague Rd. around noon.

The home sustained heavy damage after a lawnmower in the garage is believed to have caught fire.

Fire officials said both homeowners and their dogs were able to evacuate the home without any injuries after a neighbor noticed smoke coming from the house and alerted the occupants.
