Oct. 6

On Oct. 6 at 5:11 a.m., the Lincoln Fire Department responded to a fire at 702 Oglesby Ave. Firefighters found that a single-story house was showing heavy fire conditions from the north side.

The arriving firefighters quickly entered the house and extinguished the fire with a 1 3/4-inch hose line. They were assisted by firefighters from Lincoln Rural, Atlanta and Mount Pulaski.

The fire did extensive damage to the home, estimated to be around $150,000.

A family of three lived in the house, along with two dogs. Everyone was home at the time of the fire, and they all escaped safely thanks to the smoke detectors. The family was able to grab the two dogs while exiting. No one was injured during the fire. The American Red Cross offered assistance to the family.

The cause of the fire is officially listed as undetermined at this time, but it appears to be accidental.
