WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) — Crews with the Wichita Fire Department battled a house fire in southeast Wichita on Thursday night.

The call came in shortly after 7:30 p.m. from the 1700 block of S Yale St. This is near the intersection of Mt. Vernon and Hillside.

According to the WFD, crews found fire showing from the rear side of a one-story house upon arrival and began an “aggressive interior attack on the fire.”

The WFD said the individual was burning leaves earlier in the evening and then went inside the house to cook. When he looked outside, the leaves had caught his deck and porch on fire, which extended to the back half of the house and into the attic.

WFD said there were no injuries. There was around $50,000 in damage to the house and $10,000 in contents damage.

“As a reminder, the City of Wichita ordinance requires a minimum distance of 15 feet from structures for fire pits and it is illegal to burn leaves in the City limits,” said WFD in a Facebook post.
