Firefighters manning eight apparatuses including a ladder truck battled a fire that destroyed a two-story frame house in the 1100 block of S.W. Woodward on early Friday.

The fire was “intentionally set,” a Topeka Fire Department statement issued about 7:30 a.m. Friday said.

No one was injured by the fire at 1112 S.W. Woodward, Battalion Chief Mark Brannock said at the fire scene.

As late as 8 a.m. Friday, smoke continued to rise from the house, which is approximately 15 feet from houses to the north and south of it.

Brannock said it was the third fire at that location since the first fire in the middle of the summer. A second fire was reported there about two weeks ago.
