House fire under investigation

Leavenworth Times – April 24, 2017

Leavenworth firefighters are investigating the cause of a house fire that started on a back porch and spread to other parts of the structure, a Fire Department spokesman said.

The fire was reported at 12:53 p.m. Saturday at 1250 Randolph St.

Firefighters received a report of a fire on a back porch. When they arrived, the fire had spread to inside the house on the first and second floors.

Mark DeMaranville, division chief of prevention for the Leavenworth Fire Department, said strong winds helped to spread the fire.

A person who was at the house suffered minor burns but was not transported to the hospital.

Members of the Fort Leavenworth Fire Department were called to provide assistance to the Leavenworth Fire Department.

DeMaranville said the fire caused an estimated $100,000 in damage.
