A fire Thursday night caused extensive damage to a southeast Wichita duplex, a fire official said.

No one was injured, and everyone has been accounted for, said fire Battalion Chief Sid Newby.

It’s possible that two adults and two children were at home at the time the fire broke out, Newby said.

Fire crews found smoke and flames and, working in the frigid weather, aggressively attacked the fire and mounted a search, he said.

Most of the damage occurred on the west unit of the duplex.

The fire was reported around 5:30 p.m.
