KLEMME, Iowa - A couple in rural Hancock County is safe after their house caught fire Monday afternoon. But now, they are left trying to figure out how to get life back on track.

Around 5:30 p.m., fire crews from Klemme, Garner and Goodell, as well as Garner Ambulance and Hancock County Sheriffs, were called to a house owned by Bill and Jolene Bell on Yale Ave. near 160th St. east of Klemme.

Smoke was coming from a corner area on the west side of the house and got into the attic. Bill noticed it and tried to put out some of the blaze using a garden hose.

The Bells are waiting to speak with an insurance adjuster to talk about what steps would need to happen next. There is no word yet on total damage costs.
