WICHITA, Kan. -- Crews made quick work of a fire at an abandoned four-plex early Saturday afternoon.

Crews were called around noon to the 1400 block of North Kansas, near I-135 and Hillside. When they arrived on scene, they found one of the units was engulfed.

Battalion Chief Joe Bickel said firefighters quickly brought the blaze under control and no one was hurt.

He said there is no loss, because the building and 13 others like it on the block are abandoned and scheduled for demolition.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
