The Paradise Lakes neighborhood in Bellevue is nearly covered by floodwaters on March 17.

Fire officials are investigating a blaze that occurred Monday evening at a flood-damaged home in Paradise Lakes.

Joe Gibilisco, battalion chief for the Bellevue Fire Department, said the state fire marshal is being called because the fire is of unknown origin.

Homes in Paradise Lakes were heavily damaged by flooding after the levee protecting them from the Missouri River broke.

A passer-by called in the fire about 6:30 p.m., Gibilisco said.
