Afternoon blaze causes smoke damage to home (KTVO Louis Finley)

Five volunteer fire departments fought an afternoon blaze in West Grove, Iowa on Friday.

Crews were called to a house off the corner of Highway 2 and Emerald Avenue around 4 p.m.

Bloomfield Assistant Fire Chief Brett Warning told KTVO the fire appeared to have started in a garage or shed in the back.

As a result, there was smoke damage throughout the house.

No one was inside the house, and there were no injuries.

A neighbor told KTVO the homeowner's funeral was on Friday, and the house is currently being taken care of by his sons.
