A family has escaped flames that destroyed their rural home near Filley in southeast Nebraska.

Beatrice radio station KWBE says the fire was reported around 1:30 a.m. Thursday and around 30 firefighters from three departments responded.

Filley Fire District Chief Brad Robinson says it took about an hour to control the fire, which flared anew when flames found fuel in the house basement. The house was gutted.

No injuries have been reported. The fire cause is being investigated.
