LINCOLN -- Officials spent the night and early morning hours determining what may have triggered a three-alarm fire that destroyed a home near 112th and Holdrege. The home in the 1200 block of Piper Way in the Sky Ranch Acres subdivision, which was recently annexed into the city of Lincoln, caught on fire just before 8 p.m. Monday. Lincoln Fire Units responded, as did crews from Southeast Rural and Waverly Fire Departments. Battalion Chief Jeanne Pashalek told KFOR News that the relay system was extremely important in fighting the blaze. Because of the recent annex, infrastructure in the area is still being developed; the nearest fire hydrant is about a mile away. Pashalek says that nine Lincoln fire trucks would have been needed to transport water to the fire without the relay system. A portion of Holdrege from 98th to 112th Streets was blocked off for several hours, so crews could get water trucked in to the neighborhood. Fire fighters continued to battle the blaze throughout the night. Several neighbors reported seeing the flames shoot up to 30 feet high. Smoke could be seen as far away as 84th and Adams.
