Feb. 25—An overnight fire at a duplex near 70th and Van Dorn streets caused $350,000 damage, Lincoln Fire & Rescue says.

Capt. Nancy Crist said the 911 call about an attached garage on fire sent them to 7826 Stonewall Court around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday.

She said the owner already had evacuated by the time firefighters got there to find the garage fully involved and beginning to spread into the home.

The residents on the other half of the duplex were displaced due to smoke damage.

Crist said one firefighter had a minor injury on the scene but wasn’t taken to a hospital.

The cause of the fire remained under investigation Thursday.
