The cause of the fire that happened Friday near Old Town is undetermined, and it will stay that way, officials say.
The level of damage to the house in the 400 block of North Washington made a full investigation impossible, said Wichita fire Capt. Stuart Bevis. The second story of the house collapsed in the fire.
Though the fire department listed an unknown cause in the report, Bevis said officials have knowledge of candles being used in the home, which could have led to the fire.
The fire caused $30,000 in damage. The house was not insured.
