WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) — A person was killed in an Andover house fire early Sunday, and a woman was critically injured. A teenage boy was also critically injured, but his condition has been upgraded.

The fire broke out around 1:43 a.m. in the 300 block of Clubhouse Circle.

The Andover Fire Department says the Andover Police Department (APD) arrived just before them. Upon arrival, the APD found a teenager and a woman on the roof of the house. They had escaped the second floor to get up there. Officers were able to help the two escape the roof as firefighters were arriving.

“Firefighters made an aggressive attack on the rear exterior of the building,” said Andover Fire Chief Chad Russell. “And the dad is unaccounted for.”

The daughter was not inside at the time of the fire because she was staying with friends for the night.

Russell said for the safety of the firefighters, they had to wait until daylight to better assess the situation.

“We had a lot of collapse, so the second floor collapsed into the first floor and a few places and the roof that didn’t burn off collapsed into the second floor, and every floor is weakened,” said Russell.

Family and friends are now doing what they can to support the family.

“It’s unfortunate. This is just a thing that, you know, you never know what’s going to happen,” said one family member. “But our family’s strong, and we’re pulling together right now with all the support.”

“And it is a tragedy for our community as we know this family and all of us here in this community are very tight-knit,” said Chad Langhofer, president of the Green Valley 5th/6th Homeowners Association.

The homeowners association is putting together a meal drive to support the family and gather clothes and other items to help the son, daughter, and mother still recovering in the hospital. They also set up a GoFundMe page to help the family.

The cause of the fire is not been released. The Kansas State Fire Marshal and Augusta fire investigators are assisting the AFD and the APD with the investigation.
