ALLIANCE, Neb.— One person has been treated after a fire heavily damaged a rural home in the Nebraska Panhandle.
Alliance radio station KCOW says (http://bit.ly/Jcf2rk ) firetrucks from Hemingford were dispatched around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday to a residence nine miles northeast of Alliance. Alliance firefighters soon joined the battle.
Hemingford Fire Chief Mark Klemke says it took more than six hours to knock down the flames and eliminate hot spots.

The fire cause is being investigated.
