An adult and two children were able to escape their burning home late Thursday morning in the city’s midtown area.

Firefighters responded around 11 a.m. to a report of a house fire at 1038 S.W. Boswell.

First-arriving crews found a small fire in a bedroom of the residence and were able to extinguish it quickly.

Topeka Fire Department Battalion Chief Kelly Adams said the blaze appeared to have started in the area of a mattress.

Firefighters made a “good stop” on the blaze and were able to keep it to the room where it started.

Firefighters ventilated the one-story, brown home of smoke after the fire was out.

No injuries were reported.

An estimated dollar loss wasn’t immediately available.

According to the Shawnee County Appraiser’s website, the home’s 2016 value was $46,450. The property is owned by Cornerstone of Topeka.
