UPDATE: No injuries in Ringle House fire

Posted:
Fire crews had to head out in this frigid weather to fight a house fire in Ringle.

The Ringle Fire Chief says the fire started just after 6 p.m. Wednesday and was contained within 15 minutes.

Officials say the homeowners were thawing pipes in a back room in the house earlier. 

They say these sub-zero temperatures can cause some trouble when battling a blaze.

"With the hoses and the water, they freeze up so we have the keep the hoses open so nothing freezes up on us while we're doing rehab," said Ringle Fire Chief Chris Kielman.

Fire officials say there were no injuries.
