Fire guts house outside of Walker

Posted:
WALKER (KWWL) -

A fire guts a home in Linn County. Fire crews were called to the 4400 block of Bauer Avenue south of Walker shortly before noon Wednesday.

The Walker fire chief says the blaze started in the basement, possibly in a wood burning furnace. The fire then spread to the rest of the house and while it's still standing, fire officials say the building is a total loss. The interior of the home is destroyed.

Several fire departments helped the Walker Fire Department at the scene.

Only one person lived in the home and there are no injuries.
