Fire damages west side home

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -- While the snow was falling Wednesday afternoon, Sioux City firefighters were at work.

Just after 1:00, crews responded to a house fire on the city's west side. It happened at 215 South Casselman.

Authorities say a child playing was playing with matches in an upstairs room.

The fire was contained to just one room, but much of the second floor suffered smoke and water damage. Everyone inside made it out safely.

The Sioux City Fire Department says the home has been red-tagged, and the Red Cross is helping the family find a place to stay.
