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.

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.
