WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) — A woman suffered from smoke inhalation during a fire at a home in south Wichita Thursday morning.
The fire was in the 400 block of West 57th Street South. The Wichita Fire Department arrived around 9 a.m. and saw smoke and flames coming from the home.
A woman who had been in the home got out. The Wichita Fire Department described her as being in critical condition and called for EMS. But the WFD said she refused an ambulance ride to the hospital.
Firefighters found two dogs in the home. They administered oxygen to one of the dogs and said that both are doing well.
The fire department said the newer home had recently been moved to that location, and two residents had just moved in. The other resident was not in the house at the time of the fire.
The home did not have working smoke detectors because they had been removed during the relocation process.
WFD investigators are working to find the cause of the fire.
The Red Cross is assisting the residents and the pets.
