Firefighters investigate what sparked a massive house fire late last night in east Wichita.
Fire Marshal Ed Bricknell said fire crews noticed heavy smoke and flames shooting from two sides and the roof of the home shortly after 10:30 p.m. in the 200 Blk. of S. Ridgewood.
The blaze threatened nearby homes and forced firefighters to immediately call for extra units and fight the fire defensively. Eventually, the fire was brought under control. No one was home at the time.
