Fire damages home in southwest Wichita

Stay up-to-date with KAKE News:

A house suffered heavy damage in a fire Friday morning.

Wichita firefighters were already en route to a reported trash fire when they saw smoke coming from a home in the 900 block of West Meikle. Fire crews began fighting the house fire, and requested that additional crews head to the original trash fire.

They were able to get the fire under control several minutes later.

The fire department said it appears it started in a bedroom before spreading to the attic. No one was home at the time.

The cause is under investigation, and damage is estimated at $50,000.
