WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) — The Wichita Fire Department, Fire District 1 and the Andover Fire Department battled a fire on the east side of town Wednesday evening.

The fire broke out shortly before 6:30 p.m. in the 1400 block of S. Hickory Stick Cir., northeast of 143rd Sreet East and Harry.

According to a tweet from the Wichita Fire Department, the first crews to arrive saw flames coming from the two-story home.

“On arrival, the first units had fire coming out of the middle of the roof, or the middle of the house out of the roof,” said Wichita Fire Department Battalion Chief Terry Gresham. “I called for two more engines due to that information and the amount of smoke that we had in the air.”

Firefighters got the fire under control relatively quickly. No people or pets were in the home, and no one was injured.

On Thursday, Wichita Fire Department investigators said they determined the fire’s cause to be accidental. They said the fire started on the back deck and went up the back of the house into the attic.

Damage is estimated at $250,000.
