Dog revived after porch fire causes $250,000 in damage to Lincoln home, officials say

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — A porch fire caused an estimated $250,000 in damage after spreading to the home late Sunday night, according to Lincoln Fire and Rescue.

This all started near North 29th and Vine Streets, just before 10:30 p.m.

Officials say flames eventually spread to the home, displacing two adults and a couple of dogs.

LFR tells Channel 8 none of the people were injured and its crews are safe as well, despite challenges due to freezing temps.

One of the dogs had to be revived and was receiving treatment as of the latest update.

Officials say they had to rotate personnel more frequently as ice shells kept forming on their equipment as it got wet.

We’re told there could be some slick spots in this area during the Monday morning commute, so be extra careful if passing through.

LFR called for the road to be treated with gravel and sand to help minimize any remaining danger.

This was the first of two overnight house fires in Lincoln.
