A New Castle home at 136 N. B Ave. sustained heavy damage in a fire early Monday morning.

The cause of the fire was under investigation.

Colorado River Fire Rescue got the call at 3:16 a.m., and when they arrived, firefighters could see flames coming out of the windows, according to a press release.

The fire spread into the attic, and the home sustained extensive damage from heat and smoke.

One person and a dog in the home were able to evacuate before fire crews arrived.

The house was deemed uninhabitable, and the homeowners are being assisted by the American Red Cross.
