No injuries in northeast Wichita house fire

KAKE – May 18, 2018

No one was hurt after a house caught fire in northeast Wichita on Friday afternoon.

Crews were called at around 2 p.m. to a house fire in the 1500 block of North Holyoke, near 13th and Hillside. Battalion Chief Scott Brown said a neighbor walking her dog saw smoke and flames emanating from the three-story home and called 911.

Crews arrived to find heavy fire involvement on the second and third floors.

“We got reports that there may be an elderly man that lived in the basement, so we dedicated lot of crews to search,” Brown said. “Found out nobody was home at the time. Nobody was hurt.”

The fire was under control in about 15 minutes. Brown said the house had been divided into three or four apartments.

The cause of the fire is under investigation and a damage estimate has yet to be determined.
