KIMBALL, Neb. A fire at the 300 Block of S Burg St. in Kimball displaces two adults Thursday afternoon.
According to Kimball Volunteer Fire Chief Rick Wynne, they received the call around 1:00pm.
The fire was caused accidentally by a homeowner attempting to thaw out their pipes with a propane torch.
The only injury reported is from a firefighter who has an injured shoulder.
