OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The Omaha Fire Department says fireworks started a fire that damaged a house on Pratt Street.

On Sunday night crews responded to a dumpster fire that spread to a vacant house. It was in the driveway between two homes.

Neighbors said the fire started when a firework landed in the dumpster and the department found that it was the cause.

On 38th Street in Omaha nine people are displaced and a dog died after a house fire Sunday afternoon.

When firefighters arrived they saw smoke and flames and people evacuating. None of the four adults or five children were injured.
