Firefighters braved single digit temperates Wednesday morning after responding to a house fire at 210  Jirdon Avenue in Morrill around 7 a.m.

Firefighters from the Morrill and Mitchell fire departments spent several hours battling the blaze and working to extinguish smoke coming from the house.

Several hours later, Lyman and Scottsbluff Fire Departments provided mutual aid due to the status of the air packs for the initial first responders.

Fire Chief Matt Hinman says crews were on scene until about 2 p.m. Wednesday. He says the bulk of the fire damage was on the north side of the home, and there was significant smoke damage to the entire home.

He says as of Wednesday afternoon, the cause of the fire was electrical in nature.

There were no injuries as a result of the fire, and the house was unoccupied. Family members say the house was for sale, and the closing date was just a few days away.
