A Scottsbluff couple have been displaced after an electrical fire at their home early Wednesday.
Scottsbluff Rural Fire Chief Carissa Schank said Scottsbluff Rural and Gering Fire responded about 1:40 a.m. to a fire in the 1200 block of Meadowlark Lane. Gering Fire Department also responded, providing mutual aid.
When firefighters arrived, Schank said, light smoke was showing from the eaves and attic space. The fire was located in the attic.
“We were able to extinguish the fire, remove the damaged material and ventilate, causing only minimal damage,” she said.
The State Fire Marshal’s Office investigated, and the cause has been determined to be electrical. Schank said damage was estimated at $25,000.
Firefighters were on scene until about 3 a.m.
