The Dickinson Fire Department found itself battling a house fire that just wouldn't quit Thursday, one of the hottest days of the summer.

Firefighters responded to 537 Second Ave. E. just before 10 a.m. and stayed on scene until 2 p.m. and returned an hour later to extinguish flare-ups in the roof.

Dickinson Fire Chief Bob Sivak said the fire started in the back bedroom on the main floor and that the cause was undetermined because of the extent of the damage.
