Crews put out house fire on Grand Rapids' West Side

Fire Damages Home in NW Grand Rapids

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - A home on the city's West Side was heavily damaged by flames and smoke Monday morning.

Firefighters reported to the fire around 9:43 a.m. Sept. 19, near Lincoln Avenue and Cora Street NW.

No one was believed to be inside the house, according to a commander at the scene. An initial report indicated someone might have been trapped, but crews searched the two-story house and found no one inside.

The cause of the fire is not yet known.

A witness who asked not to be named said he was mowing grass nearby when he saw the smoke flames. He watched a neighbor making attempts to put it out with a hose but when that wasn't working, the man ran to the home and began knocking on doors.

No one answered and, again, firefighters don't believe anyone was home.
