Crews find dog in downtown Lincoln home after fire

LINCOLN, Nebraska (Nebraska) – The Lincoln Fire and Rescue Service says crews found a dog in a downtown home after a fire.

The call came just before 10:30 p.m. Sunday night after flames appeared at the front of a building near 29th Street and Vine Street.

Two residents and the dog were missing from the home when firefighters arrived, according to LFR, but a second dog was found during search and rescue efforts.

Firefighters said they handed the dog over to animal control.

According to LFR, the fire started on the porch and spread to the house.

By the time the 11/11 NOW reporter arrived on the scene, crews had put out the fire and were working to put out hot spots on the front of the house.

Pospisil said LFR personnel were unharmed despite single-digit temperatures at the time, which, Pospisil added, made the fire more difficult to extinguish. He said changing crews and keeping the hoses from freezing were the biggest challenges.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation. Vine Street reopened just before 1:00 a.m. after it was closed as a result of the incident.
