SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) — No one was injured in a house fire on the west side of Sioux City.

Around 5:45 p.m. firefighters were called to a structure fire on the 1800 block of West Second Street. Flames were seen coming from the rear of the buildings.

When firefighters arrived on scene they found heavy fire coming form the back of the house. Sioux City Fire Rescue said the fire did spread into the living area of the home. One person was inside of the house when the fire broke out. They did manage to safety escape. Fire officials said getting to the fire was a bit of a challenge.

“Quite a climb up to the house. Many, nay stairs so its kind of above the street, which makes a little more difficult to access. There’s no real access in the rear so that is a challenge.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. Officials say the house is expected to be red-tagged.
