Rescuers called to early morning house fire in Dubuque

Posted: Updated:
DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

Rescuers in Dubuque were called to a fire in the 1300 block of West 3rd Street early Wednesday morning.

Assistant Fire Marshal Mike McMahon says the fire started near a bedroom window and went up the wall of the home, but did not make it into the attic.

People living in the home tried to put the fire out themselves before calling for help at 12:44 a.m.

The American Red Cross helped five people with a place to stay for the night.

No one was hurt. McMahon said the cause of the fire is still under investigation.

Officials remind residents that there is no cost to call the fire department to a fire, and it is best to call for help as soon as someone notices smoke or flames.
