WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – One person was injured in an apartment fire in northeast Wichita Monday night. The fire occurred at the Brickstone At Woodlawn Apartments in the 2300 block of N. Woodlawn.

A Sedgwick County emergency dispatch supervisor told KSN firefighters were dispatched to an apartment in the complex after a caller reported a cooking fire. Firefighters said a woman in the apartment tried to put water on the fire which caused it to flare up. The fire was extinguished quickly, fire officials said.

A short time later, Sedgwick County Emergency Medical Services were called to the scene after firefighters reported one person was injured in the fire.

The victim was taken by ambulance to a hospital with serious burns.

Fire officials did not give a damage estimate to the apartment and its contents.
