Fire at ice cream shop

No injuries were reported during a structure fire the morning of Tuesday, Sept. 20 on Military Avenue and South Broad Street.

According to Fremont Fire Department Fire Chief Todd Bernt, a call came in about a structure fire around 9:45 a.m.

Crews were already in the area at Care Corps’ LifeHouse for a squad call. As they were coming out of LifeHouse, the crew saw smoke coming out of the neighboring building and called for other on-duty firefighters to respond.

“When we showed up we had heavy smoke on approach. Probably within 20 minutes, we pretty much had it knocked down,” Bernt said.

The fire was contained by 11 a.m.

After the fire was out, crews were overhauling the area, checking for hot spots and making sure that the fire was 100% out, he added.

A fire investigator with the Nebraska State Fire Marshal’s office was en route to the scene. The hope is that the cause of the fire would be discovered later Tuesday, Bernt said.

Fremont Rural Fire Department was called in for mutual aid. Arlington’s and Hooper’s fire departments were also called in to help man the Fremont station and take other calls while crews were fighting the fire, Bernt said.

More information will be reported on when it is made available.
