Thousands of dollars in damage after house fire

A Lincoln family is without a house because of a fire Friday afternoon.

It happened around 1:30 p.m. near W. South and S. Folsom streets.

LFR said the house suffered heavy smoke damage, but that the residents and their pets made it out safely.

They said it took 15 minutes to get the fire under control.

“We still got crews inside checking for extension, overhaul,” Capt. Rick Schneider said.  “Doing those things to make sure the fire’s completely out.”

LFR estimates the damage to be around $100,000 and the inspector is investigating the cause.
