Fire damages Lansing home

A fire caused heavy damage to a Lansing home Thursday afternoon.

Crews from about a half dozen departments were called to the 400 block of Route 34 Thursday at about 3 p.m.

Flames and smoke were visible from the outside of the house.

No one was injured, but the family that lives there was unable to stay.

The fire did cause some traffic problems, as a portion of Route 34 was shut down as crews battled the fire, and were on scene into the early evening hours.
