Smoke fills Waterloo home

WATERLOO (KWWL)-- Waterloo Fire Department crews were called to a two-story house fire at 2822 Lafayette Street just after 6 p.m. Sunday.  

Smoke was seen coming from an upstairs window when crews arrived.

Waterloo fire officials say the fire began in the first floor living room area and rose to the second floor and into the attic. Crews spent more than 2 hours at the scene. There was a considerable amount of damage to the home.

Fire crews say the owner of the home left the house about two hours before the fire started. Luckily, no one was inside the home at the time of the fire.

The Red Cross is assisting the family. A cause of the fire has not been determined.
