Lincoldn, NE (AP) - Residents have fled from a fire in a Lincoln house that had been checked earlier in the day for smoke.
Lincoln television station KLKN (http://bit.ly/1h3FxWf ) says the fire was reported a little before 9 p.m. Sunday. The fire started in a back room of the house and spread into the attic.
Officials say firefighters had been sent to the home earlier Sunday to check on a smoky smell, but neither smoke nor its source was found.
The fire cause is being investigated.
