Officials investigate fire in downtown Dubuque

Posted:

DUBUQUE (KWWL) -- Neighbors saw flames shooting out of a duplex on Bluff Street around 8 a.m.

Firefighters say the family that lives in the duplex is out of town.

Neighbors in the area say it was pretty scary getting their kids to safety.

Neighbor Nicole Woods said, "When I looked up and actually saw the flames over my head, I had to call them and say 'Let's go!  You don't have time to put on shoes, you don't have time to put on pants.  We gotta go, we gotta get out of here!'"

This is the sixth structure fire in Dubuque in the past ten days.
