A Chanute home was a total loss after a fire Thursday evening, Chief Kevin Jones reported.

Firefighters responded at 6:56 p.m. Thursday to 1523 S. Katy and were on the scene for about one and a half hours. Heavy smoke was visible from outside when firefighters arrived, and the fire was attributed to an accidental electrical fire. The house, owned by Ernest Wright, was vacant, but some contents were damaged. Nine firefighters responded.

Chanute firefighters also responded to a grass fire at 4:20 p.m., Thursday, at 15754 Ford Road, two miles southeast of Chanute, Jones reported.
