OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) - Multiple fire crews battled a house fire and challenges during a frigid Friday morning with temperatures below freezing.

The call came in around 1 a.m to a house near 180th and F streets, according to dispatch.

While Omaha fire fought to control the flames, MUD also came out to cut off a gas line.

Accessing enough water also created problems and required the help of nearby fire departments from Gretna, Waterloo and Boys Town.

The brutal weather required relief for firefighters from the Salvation Army.

No one was home at the time as the nearly $2 million and almost 10-acre property is for sale.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
