Early-morning fire guts Waterloo home

Posted: Updated:

Firefighters say no one was injured, but a Waterloo house was gutted by a fire this morning.

Crews were called to 718 West 2nd Street before 4 a.m.

They say the owner of the house lives in Arizona. The owner did have a family member living in the home, but they recently moved out. 

Firefighters had to use ladders to access the fire on the second floor because the stairs had burned. They say by the time they got there, the fire was on the second floor.
