An early Friday morning fire caused significant damage to the home located on the southwest corner of Idaho and Maple streets.

Columbus firefighters were dispatched to the fire at 4:36 a.m. and arrived to find flames extruding from the south side roof.

The house was empty, the residents had moved out of the house earlier in the week.

After the fire was brought under control the State Fire Marshal was contacted and arrived at the scene around 8 a.m.

State Fire Marshal Eric Lawrence arrived with the latest in fire autopsy equipment. A photo drone, allowed him to get pictures from above the fire and close to the roof.

“This is just another tool in our tool box to assess the fire scene, said Kansas Fire Marshal Lawrence.
