An Omaha family was forced out of their home by fire Wednesday morning.
Firefighters said the flames started on the back deck of the residence near South 157th and Hickory and quickly spread to the attic before a porch collapsed. A dog died in the blaze.
One resident said he was smoking on the deck and discarded a cigarette into a bucket of cigarette butts and dried leaves. OFD says that ignited the fire.
