House Fire On Valley Drive In Bettendorf


Fire broke out inside a home on Valley Dr. in Bettendorf Friday, Sept. 6, 2013. While know one was hurt, the damage is pretty extensive.

The call came in at 9:37 for a structure fire in the 24-thousand block of Valley Drive. Fire crews put the fire out quickly, but it is evident from the soot on the home that the fire was pretty intense. Bettendorf Fire Chief Gerry Volliger was on the scene and explained what they know so far.

"A passerby reported that flames were coming out of the 2nd story window. We arrived moments later and found just that. The fire was quickly knocked down, under control and now we're just doing overhaul, looking for hidden fires," said Volliger.

There is a lot of damage from the fire on the 2nd floor of the 2-story home. Water damaged the first floor.

The chief says no one was in the house at the time of the fire and the pets got out okay. Officials don't know yet how the fire started.
