Wichita firefighters were called to the scene of a house fire Monday morning.

It happened shortly before 7:30 a.m. in the 1200 block of El Monte. When crews arrived, they found smoke coming from an attic vent. Crews were able to quickly knock down the fire which was located in the basement.

Investigators have traced the cause to some sort of electrical issue. The home had been without power since Thursday's storm. The power had finally been restored at 6 a.m.

The home's owners were not home at the time of the fire. Damage is estimated at $25,000 to the home and $15,000 to the contents.
