Dog killed in northwest Lincoln house fire

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Several Lincoln Fire & Rescue crews helped put out a blaze at a northwest Lincoln home Wednesday afternoon.

When crews arrived at the home near Northwest 48th and Holdrege Streets around 2:30 p.m., smoke coming from the home made it hard to see.

Battalion Chief Curt Faust said wind played a role in how they fought the fire, which he said began in the kitchen and spread to the attic.

Crews were able to rescue one cat, but one dog was killed in the fire, Faust said.

Nobody was injured in the fire, but the family will need to be relocated, according to Faust.

It is currently unknown what caused the fire or how much damage it caused.

But Faust said that there was “significant” damage and that the home would need an “extensive remodeling.”
