Firefighters are busy dousing a house fire.

Waterloo firefighters were called to a home near Randall Street and Norimer Street around 4:30 p.m. Saturday night.

A witness says he heard a loud popping sound from a nearby power line and saw a thick cloud of smoke come from a home in the 600 block of Randall Street.

Right now, dozens of witnesses are watching firefighters try to contain the flames.

A witness says he believes the fire may have started from a space heater in the home, and he believes a person inside made it out all right.

We are working to confirm more details about this story.
