North Lincoln fire causes $225,000 in damage
LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Several Lincoln Fire and Rescue crews responded to a fire at Komi Auto near 22nd and Y Streets Sunday night.
Firefighters were called to the business just after 10:30 p.m. on reports of moderate smoke coming from the structure. Fire Chief Dave Engler said crews arrived and began trying to access the structure while also putting out the flames with water. Engler says due to some difficulty in accessing the inside of the business, the fire was able to spread more, making it a challenge to put out.
Engler says the fire got into a section that’s in between the roof and the building’s ceiling, making things even more difficult for firefighters to put out the entire blaze.
Crews finally were able to get things under control around 11:45 p.m.
LFR reported no injuries due to the incident. LFR said an electrical issue caused the fire.
The fire caused $150,000 of damage to the structure and $75,000 to the contents.
