UPDATE: House fire in Lisbon a total loss

Posted: Updated:
LISBON (KWWL) -

A fire in Lisbon destroyed the home, while most of the community's firefighters were out of town.

Firefighters were called to the 100 block of South Jackson Street around 11:30 a.m. on Friday.

Most of the Lisbon firefighters were in Cedar Falls to watch the high school football team in the state championship game in the UNI-Dome. Other area fire departments including Mechanicsville, Mt. Vernon and Solon were called in to help.

The family that lives in the home were also on their way to the high school football game, so they were not home during the fire. Firefighters are still investigating how the fire started. The home is considered a total loss.

Fire crews left the scene around 3:45 p.m.
