AFTERNOON FIRE: Flames ‘Higher Than The House’

Des Moines firefighters were called out during the noon hour Thursday.

“I was sitting in my car… and I saw through the backyard flames that are higher than the houses,” Dana Melby-Maddox described.

Melby-Maddox says she helped a woman and her two dogs out of the Euclid Avenue home.

No one was hurt.

Firefighters are still trying to figure out how the fire started.
