A second-floor apartment fire in south-central Lincoln on Tuesday caused $300,000 in damage and displaced every resident in the six-unit building, according to Lincoln Fire and Rescue.
Crews responded to the building near 10th and Washington streets shortly after 1 p.m. Tuesday, where they observed "heavy fire" emitting from a second-story bedroom window, Capt. Nancy Crist said.
Fire crews quickly extinguished the blaze, Crist said, though it had spread into the attic and living room areas of the apartment where it started.
Crist said city inspectors determined the cause of the fire to be electrical.
All building residents had been evacuated before crews arrived, Crist said. Neighboring apartment units were spared from the worst of the fire, though water and smoke damage affected multiple dwellings, Crist said.
Police have interviewed the driver of the car they sought — a 2007 Chevrolet Malibu — and the driver of a 2006 Infiniti sedan also seen in the area. No citations have been issued in connection to the fatal crash.
"You made a huge mistake when you chose drug dealing as an occupation. And it's going to cost you 11 years of your life," U.S. District Judge John Gerrard told Jose Marino-Meza at his sentencing Friday.
"Trey was adventurous," said Christy Williams, a cousin to Trevious Clark, the Mississippi native killed Monday near 26th and Vine. "He hadn't been out here much -- close to 10 years -- but he touched a lot of hearts out here."
Sandra Nelson, 60, of Formoso, Kansas, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Nebraska State Patrol. Darin Koepke, a 53-year-old Hadar man, died at a Lincoln hospital. Both were Agrex employees.
When police arrived, the woman ran to the officer, Allen Busby chasing behind her until he saw the cruiser. She said he had gotten in and physically and sexually assaulted her, with her 2-year-old child asleep in a nearby bedroom.
The 24-year-old was walking to her car when the man cornered her and demanded the keys to her 2008 Honda Accord, police said. Officers are searching for the car, worth around $4,000. The Honda's plate number is 29-K499.
