Firefighters work to put out the blaze at the back of the home located at 1714 Maple St.

Smoke billowed out the back of 1714 Maple St. on Tuesday as volunteer firefighters worked to put out a blaze trapped between the kitchen ceiling and the attic floor.

There was no one home when neighbors, who noticed the smoke, reported the fire on Tuesday afternoon. A team of 17 volunteer firefighters utilizing four trucks were on scene for almost four hours dealing with the fire and its aftermath. Sidney Fire Chief Keith Stone estimated that the fire burned for around an hour.

The home suffered extensive main floor fire and smoke damage, Stone said. The state fire marshall is currently investigating the cause of the fire.
