Lincoln Fire and Rescue responded to a two-alarm house fire in southeast Lincoln early Saturday morning. The call came in around 2:40 a.m. of a home catching fire near 44th Street and Duxhall Drive. LFR says, upon arrival, crews had fire showing from the front of the house. LFR says that due to the location of the fire, it was a challenge to get it under control, as the fire worked its way up through the walls of the home and into the attic area. Firefighters were eventually able to get the upper hand, and the fire was declared under control just before 3:30 a.m. The entire incident lasted four hours. LFR Public Information Officer, Capt. Nancy Crist, says two people were inside at the time, but made it out of the home safely. She says that the smoke detectors in the home did not alert the residents of the flames, but that the crackling sound of the attic fire is what alerted them.
