Fire reported behind home in south Wichita
Wichita firefighters were called to a home in the 1400 block of South Waco at about 7:46 a.m. Tuesday.
When they arrived, crews found a two-story garage apartment structure behind a home. Smoke and flames were coming from the second story. Battalion chief Sid Newby said crews saw holes in the floor and they pulled back to fight the fire from a defensive posture. The building was vacant and it apparently was being used for storage.
No one was injured, and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
