Apartment fire displaces 17 Wichitans

KWCH – May 29, 2018

Wichita fire investigators are looking for a cause after an early-morning apartment fire south of downtown Wichita.

Crews were called to the 800 block of S. Emporia at around 1:30 Sunday morning. They found flames along the outside wall, which had made their way into the attic.

Firefighters worked to get everyone out of their apartments and put out the fire.

The American Red Cross was called in to assist the 17 people who were displaced by the fire.

Fire officials estimate damage at more than $100,000.

Four of the 24 apartments sustained fire damage, the rest were damaged by smoke.

No one was hurt.
