Thursday morning fire destroys home in Lisbon, N.D.

LISBON, N.D. - Authorities here say a fire destroyed a home Thursday morning.

Lisbon Fire Chief Joe Billing said firefighters were called to the Howard Hoff home just before six a.m. on a report of a chimney fire.

Billing said when firefighters arrived at the house, it was “totally full of smoke; there was smoke coming out of the eves, and upstairs windows and we just started cutting the roof apart, trying to get it out.”

Hoff was the only person in the home and he made it out safely.

Firefighters were on the scene for about three-and-a-half hours.
