Fire causes significant damage to Falls City home
07/19/2021

(KLZA)--Fire caused significant damage to a Falls City home over the weekend, but no injuries.

The Falls City Volunteer Fire Department responded to a residence at 803 East 16th Street shortly before 6:00 Saturday evening.

In a release, the Fire Department said a fire had started in a trash basket in the laundry room, and spread to the kitchen, bathroom and living rooms.

Firefighters extinguished the fire quickly, but report significant smoke and fire damage.

Firefighters remained on the scene until 10:00. They were called back around 9:00 Sunday morning after the fire rekindled in the kitchen and spent another hour on the scene.

The home is owned by Charles Bennett and Colleen Langan. Langan was home when the fire broke out and got out safely.

The Fire Department said the fire appears to have started due to the improper disposal of smoking material.
