House Fire in Bow Snuffed Out by Fire Department

BROKEN BOW – A house fire on 7th Avenue in Broken Bow called the Broken Bow Fire Department to action at 1:34 p.m.

Three trucks responded within 15 minutes: Engine 32, Rescue 61, and Tower 3. Firefighters fought the blaze for about an hour, which seemed to come from the basement of the house.

Most of the fight seemed to be clearing smoke to allow firefighters to see the interior of the house; industrial fans were planted in two entryways of the house to help. No injuries were reported to either fire personnel or residents.

City Administrator Dan Knoell, the Custer County Sheriff’s Department, Broken Bow Police and Broken Bow Rescue aided in the response.
