Fire Consumes Home Northwest of GI

An evening mobile home fire kept members of Grand Island Rural and the St. Libory Volunteer Fire Departments busy for several hours last as both departments battled a blaze that extensively damaged the structure.


Firefighters received the call at about 8:30 Wednesday night near the 500 blocks or Evergreen lane northeast of the city.


Grand Island Rural Fire Chief Chuck Hoffman tells KRGI News that when firefighters arrived, both the home and its garage were fully involved.


Hoffman says that it took firefighters about 15 minutes to get the blaze under control. He says both structures were a complete loss. No one was hurt, but a dog passed away in the blaze.


Hoffman also says that if people in rural areas are planning to burn trash soon, they may want to reconsider.
