Update: Rural Dubuque County home burns

KEY WEST (KWWL) - A Key West home was destroyed by a fire Friday evening.

Firefighters from multiple agencies, including Bernard, Key West and La Motte, responded to the scene. Damage is estimated to be at $100,000.

The Dubuque Sheriff's office reports a firefighter from the Key West Fire Department was taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Investigators believe that a grass fire got out of control near the property and spread to the home.

Neighbors say the owner, Dick Ambrosey, was not home at the time of the fire.
