Akeley and Nevis firefighters are on the scene of a house fire south of Akeley Monday.

The call came in around 12:30 p.m. The East Hubbard County Fire Department immediately put in a call for mutual aid from Nevis.


The house, east of Highway 63, appeared to be a total loss. Akeley firefighters were seeking alternate sources of water when the city water supply appeared to be dwindling Monday afternoon, but firefighters on the scene said their tanker had an ample supply.

Firefighters were still in the process of locating the homeowners.
