Nebraska News

HOLDREGE, Neb. (AP) — Firefighters in south-central Nebraska saved more than 100 rabbits from a fire that threatened their large hutch.

The Kearney Hub reports the fire broke out Monday afternoon on a property in Holdrege. Officials say the fire began in a workshop and spread to a lean-to livestock shelter.

Holdrege Assistant Fire Chief Jim Wagner says the fire was only a couple of feet from the structure that housed between 100 and 150 rabbits when firefighters were able to pull the animals to safety.

Wagner says no one was injured in the fire, and he was unaware of any animals being lost in the blaze.
