CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

Firemen say heat from a neon sign started a bird's nest on fire - leading rescue crews to the Dairy Queen in Cedar Falls on Monday morning.

Fire Chief John Schilling says the bird nest was built in the sign, and an employee used a fire extinguisher to put the fire out.

Chief Schilling says it was a good thing the fire happened during the day when people were around, because in the middle of the night, it might not have been noticed until it caught the roof on fire.
