A fire in a home at 4814 25th SW forced two people from the house. Firefighters said they faced some opposition from the occupants but managed to get the fire put out quickly. Fire investigators came to the scene and police were on hand as they entered and began to seek the cause.

City Light was called in to shut down power to the house as firefighters dismantled a window frame seeking any hot spots.
