WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) — The Wichita Fire Department says a woman suffered severe burns when some cooking oil caught on fire at her apartment in the 800 block of S. Hydraulic. The call came in before 10 a.m. Thursday.

An ambulance took the woman to the hospital in serious to critical condition.

The fire department says the damage to the apartment and contents is about $3,000.
