Posted: Updated:

Fire crews have responded to a two-alarm building fire in east Wichita.

Crews responded at around 3:40 p.m. Wednesday to a building fire at the Horton's Flooring store near East 13th Street North and Greenwich. 

Sedgwick County dispatch confirmed that a second alarm was called for more assistance.

The Wichita Fire Department said the fire was contained to the warehouse but due to concerns of a possible roof collapse, firefighters were ordered to exit the building and open it from the outside. Multiple rows of rolled up carpets were involved and crews are still working to locate hot spots.

No injuries were reported and investigators are still looking for what caused the fire.
