Omaha Firefighters responded to the scene of a house fire Sunday evening near 204th and F Streets.
At about 6:58 p.m. smoke and flames were seen by fire crews on approach from the home as the garage was engulfed in fire.
Officials at the scene said everyone at the house was able to escape to safety and no one was injured. The house next door was also damaged from the fire.
According to two of the family members inside, five people were at the home for a Father's Day fish fry. They had been cooking in the garage and went inside to eat until a neighbor called them in a panic.
Neighbors say the house went from smoke coming from the windows to fully engulfed in minutes.
The fire is still under investigation.
