Firefighters responded to an early afternoon fire Monday, at 160 Washington, located at the northwest corner of the square in Kahoka. Several witnesses reported seeing flames reaching the metal roof of a second-story porch at the rear of the building. The fire appears to have started on that porch. Picured: Fire Chief Lary Fountain soaks the doorway with a small hose. More photos can be seen at www.nemonews.net.
