SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) — Fire crews responded to a house fire on 10th Street in Sioux City Monday afternoon.
Around 2:48 p.m., Sioux City fire crews were dispatched to a fire at 900 block of 10th Street. When crews arrived, they found a fire on the second floor that had spread to the attic. The occupants were at home at the time of the fire and were alerted by smoke detectors inside the home.
Lt. Garrett Soldati said October is Fire Prevention Month, and incidents like these highlight the need to check your smoke detectors.
“Fires like these, the rapid evacuation of occupants inside the home is hastened by working smoke detectors/smoke alarms. So I would remind folks at home watching that now’s the time to check your smoke alarms and make sure they work.” said Soldati.
No injuries were reported. The cause of the fire is unknown at this time. A city inspector was brought in to assess the damage to determine if the house will be red-tagged.
