DUBUQUE, Iowa — Fire destroyed a house in Dubuque late Friday night.

Firefighters were called out just before midnight to the 1800 block of Jackson Street.

One person inside the home got out safely.

Firefighters said the back of the home was on fire and a power line was down in the backyard when they arrived.

The fire destroyed the attic and the rest of the house took on heavy smoke and water damage.

Crews said smoke entered an apartment complex next door and people living there had to leave for the night.
