Crews battle southwest Wichita house fire

Posted: Updated:

Crews battled an early morning house fire in southwest Wichita.

They were called to the 2100 block of south Water Street just after 2:00 a.m. on Wednesday.

Battalion Chief Sid Newby says it was a challenge to put out the flames.  "It took a lot of additional work, stretched multiple lines, determined there was no one inside the structure, and right now were waiting for a fire investigator to determine the cause."

No one was in the home when the fire broke out.
