Lincoln home destroyed by Friday morning fire
LINCOLN, Neb. -- Several firefighters responded to a house fire near 46th Street and St. Paul Avenue in northeast Lincoln Friday morning. The fire was just west of Nebraska Wesleyan University.
The blaze was reported around 7:30 a.m. Flames were reportedly shooting from the second floor when firefighters arrived.
Lincoln Fire and Rescue said the home was in poor condition and no one currently lives there.
Hoarding conditions in the home posed a challenge for firefighters, who reportedly tried to fight the fire inside the building until clutter in the home forced them outside.
The house is a total loss. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
