Firefighters battle house fire near downtown


WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW)  A fire broke damaged a home early Tuesday morning. It happened around 3 near Sycamore and Maple.

A passerby noticed the fire and called 911. When firefighters arrived, they found smoke and flames coming from a two-story home.

The fire was contained to the second floor.

Wichita Fire Department Captain Ted Bush said fire crews had to not only battle the flames but “excessive storage” on the second floor.

The house is vacant, and no one was inside at the time of the fire.

The intersection of Maple and Sycamore was closed for a time. The cause remains under investigation.
