Multiple agencies respond to Hastings fire

Hastings Fire W 6th Street

HASTINGS, Neb. – Several agencies worked together to respond to a structure fire Tuesday afternoon in Hastings.

The fire was first spotted by a Hastings Police officer, who alerted Hastings Fire and Rescue and began knocking on doors of the multi-apartment residence in the 1100 block of W. 6th Street.

The HPD officer assisted in evacuating four tenants and two dogs from two apartments, and nobody was present in a third apartment at the time of the fire.

Hastings Fire and Rescue responded to the scene at 3:05 p.m., with smoke and flames visible from the upper level of the house. The structure sustained significant damage, and all tenants were displaced and will be assisted by the American Red Cross. No injuries were reported.

The fire was under control by 4:27 p.m., but crews spent several more hours locating hot spots inside voids in the remodeled structure. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

21 firefighters from Hastings Fire and Rescue and Hastings Rural were on scene, as well as the Hastings Police Department, Adams County Emergency Management, Hastings Utilities, the American Red Cross and the Salvation Army.
