A Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been issued for areas west of Omaha until 11 p.m.; however, the metro area will likely have thunderstorms on and off throughout the overnight.
A home went up in flames Wednesday night while the man and woman who live there were away. The Red Cross will now help them find shelter.
It happened around 7 p.m. at 41st and Saratoga. A neighbor saw smoke and called 911.
Investigators say there's a lot of smoke damage to the home and utilities have been shut off so the people who live there won't be able to return for awhile.
The fire department is still trying to figure out what started the fire.
