Wichita, Kan. -- Unattended cooking on a stove top inside of a north Wichita home is blamed for sparking a house fire.
It happened shortly after 12 p.m. in the 2600 block of North Litchfield, near 25th and Amidon. Acting Wichita Fire Battalion Chief Rick Bahr says when crews arrived at the scene they found heavy smoke coming from the home.
