LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Lincoln Fire & Rescue said a two-alarm duplex fire has displaced at least three people and caused roughly $250,000 in damage.

The call for the fire came in just before 10:30 p.m. Sunday night of a duplex on fire near 44th & Colfax Streets.

Acting Fire Chief Dave Engler said arriving firefighters had heavy fire showing from the structure, but were able to get it under control rather quickly.

The blaze left heavy damage to the front of the structure, as well as to vehicles in separate garages. Battalion Chief Jeremy Gegg said those vehicles are a total loss.

Chief Engler said there was smoke damage inside the homes themselves and there were no injuries.

The fire is still under investigation.
