A Council Bluffs family came home to a surprise late Wednesday night.

They arrived just before midnight to see their trailer home on Jennings Avenue, on the north end of town, was on fire.

Because the home was not in city limits, firefighters from Crescent and Underwood responded to the call.

It was believed the fire started inside the trailer before spreading to a pitched roof.

Firefighters said it was especially difficult to extinguish because the home was down a hill, and there was no nearby fire hydrant.

Nobody was injured in the fire. Investigators are still looking into a cause.
