Mobile home lost, cat perishes in Kearney fire

The Kearney Volunteer Fire Department was called at 2:45 a.m. Sunday to a residential fire at Sunset View Court, south of Highway 30 on the west end of Kearney. Smoke was billowing from the roof when firefighters arrived on the scene. When teams entered the house, they found a small burning area in the ceiling, KVFD chief Jeremy Feusner said. They knocked down the ceiling, cooled the hot areas, and cleared the stage.
