A detached garage in northwest Wichita was heavily damaged in a fire Wednesday morning.
The fire broke out around 8 a.m. at a detached garage in the 1800 block of North Payne. Firefighters arrived to find heavy smoke and fire coming from the garage, but were able to quickly extinguish it.
There were no vehicles in the garage, but one parked just outside was damaged by fire.
The cause is under investigation, but a Wichita fire captain said the dry conditions didn’t help the situation. A damage estimate is not yet available.
No one was hurt.
