(Neb.) - 1 person treated after Nebraska Panhandle fire
ALLIANCE, Neb. (AP) - One person has been treated after a fire heavily damaged a rural home near Alliance.
Firetrucks from Hemingford were dispatched around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday to a residence nine miles northeast of Alliance. Alliance firefighters soon joined the battle.
Hemingford Fire Chief Mark Klemke says it took more than six hours to knock down the flames and eliminate hot spots.
Klemke says one person was in the home when the fire was reported. That person was taken to Box Butte General Hospital to be checked for smoke inhalation.
The fire cause is being investigated.
