Fire damages vacant home in Cedar Rapids

Posted:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

A fire severely damaged a flooded-out home in Cedar Rapids.

A construction crew working in the area spotted smoke rising from the vacant house in the 400 block of C Avenue N. W. When crews arrived, heavy smoke was coming from a second-floor window in the back. They contained the fire to the attic. There were no injuries.

The fire is considered suspicious because there were no utilities connected. This is the 28th known fire in the flood zone since 2008.
