OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Fire crews made quick work of a house blaze Wednesday evening in downtown Omaha.

On arrival, crews found light smoke from the rear of a single-story single-family home. A working fire was declared in the basement but was extinguished within about 10 minutes.

The home was occupied, but the occupant nor their pet was home at the time.

No injuries were reported. The investigation is ongoing.
