Posted: Updated:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

The Waterloo Fire Department responded to a fire at a home at 2846 Lafayette Street around 2:30 p.m. on Friday.

The fire was caused by electrical wiring and started in the attic.

Crews on scene say the fire must have burning for some time due to the extensive damage to the attic.

The department had more than a dozen firefighters on scene and worked for more than an hour to make sure the fire did not restart due to embers in the insulation.

There were no injuries.
