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.
Fire crews were called to a northwest Omaha home around noon Tuesday to put out a fire that caused extensive damage.
Firefighters say the home located near 109th and Military Ave suffered major damage on the main floor and back bedroom.
The rest of the house suffered water and smoke damage.
The fire is under investigation but fire officials at the scene believe an improperly disposed cigarette could be the cause.
No one was injured.
