An RFD firefighter guides a strong stream of water at a home in the 800 block of West 12th Street Sunday afternoon. According to the RFD’s public information officer, Todd Wildermuth, the report came in shortly before 3:30 p.m. Wildermuth said a strong wind had caused the fire to quickly engulf the unoccupied home. “However, RFD attacked the fire aggressively, gaining control and preventing the blaze from spreading to neighboring homes,” Wildermuth said. “The cause of the fire is under investigation.” (Trevier Gonzalez Photo)
