ADAMS COUNTY, Neb. (KSNB) - A couple escaped injury after leaving their rural Adams County home through the windows due to an overnight fire.

The couple told firefighters they were awoken around 12:20 a.m. Wednesday by their smoke detectors. Upon opening their door, smoke was too thick inside the home, so they escaped through the window.

When firefighters from the Roseland Fire Department arrived, visible flames were seen coming out of the single story home at 11735 Osage Avenue. That's a few miles west of Ayr.

Roseland Fire was assisted by fire departments from Holstein, Blue Hill and Hastings Rural in bringing the fire under control by 3:00 a.m.

Roseland fire chief Randy Klein described the home as a total loss.

The Roseland Fire Department was called back to the home shortly after 8:00 a.m. due to the fire restarting and were again able to bring it under control.

There were no injuries to either the residents or firefighters. The fire was contained to the home and did not involve any other structures or nearby tree lines.

The Nebraska State Fire Marshall's office will be assisting in determining the cause of the fire.
