Wichita, Kansas - Fire crews continue to investigate what started a fire in an abandoned Wichita motel Sunday morning.
it started just after midnight in the 7500 block of W. Taft.
Firecrews got the flames under control in about 15 minutes, but were hindered by debris left in the building.
"We had to get past a lot of debris just to get in the door," Wichita Fire Department Captain Robert Dusenbery said . "The hallways were really cluttered, there's still a lot of furniture and things strewn about. So anything we have to go over and around to get in makes it tougher."
Nine fire crews helped to battle the blaze.
Dusenbery said one room was completely destroyed and two others were damaged.
