No injuries in late night fire in Norfolk
NORFOLK, Neb. -- A fire in Norfolk took almost 90 minutes to be put out.
The Norfolk Fire Division said they were sent to the 1600 block of S 5th St. on Friday around 9:00 p.m. for a building on fire.
Officials said there was heavy smoke and flames coming from the building. There were 25 firefighters reportedly involved in putting out the fire and they used eight apparatuses.
NFD said it took almost 90 minutes for them to fully get control of the fire and it took another two hours to overhaul the structure. Due to the building construction and fuel load, NFD reportedly had limited access to the building.
Officials said they are investigating the cause of the fire and there were no injuries reported.
NFD said they were helped by the Norfolk Police Division, Madison County Sheriff, Hadar Fire, Battle Creek Fire, NPPD, and Black Hills Energy. They would like to remind citizens to clean and maintain any wood burning furnaces and fire places.
