Back porch catches fire at Spring Valley home

Posted by wlpo on May 25, 2016

If you woke up to sirens in Spring Valley, it’s because of a fire call.

A 9-1-1 call went out just before six Wednesday morning for a back porch on fire at a home on West Iowa Street. The home is just off of Route 89 and south of downtown Spring Valley.

According to the NewsTribune, a neighbor noticed the fire and helped keep it contained to the back porch by using a garden hose. Firefighters eventually knocked the blaze down in under an hour.

Nobody was hurt and damage was kept to the porch and to the siding of the homes garage.
