WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) — A firefighter needed treatment after helping to put out a large garage fire in the 2900 block of West Newell Street Tuesday morning.

The detached garage and carport are near Central and about a half-mile west of the Arkansas River. The call came in around 11:30 a.m. of a garage and house fire. People in east Wichita reported seeing the smoke.

When the first fire crews arrived, they found the garage engulfed in flames. Battalion Chief Chad Winton, Wichita Fire Department, immediately called for two more engine companies to help.

“There was one firefighter that was injured on [the] scene — more heat exhaustion,” Winton said. “He did not get transported to the hospital. He was taken care of on scene.”

He said the two people in the home got out safely.

“[The fire] didn’t quite make it into the house,” Winton said. “There was some damage to the exterior of the house.”

The firefighters faced some extra danger with this fire.

“We did have an energized power line that came down in the process of fighting the fire, so we had to evacuate crews in the backyard for a while,” Winton said. “We did have a gas leak on the meter during the fire, so we had some additional curveballs thrown, but we manage them.”

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
