Fire damaged a house near the Arkansas River early Tuesday morning, authorities said.
The fire was reported at 4:09 a.m. at 432 S. Osage, a Sedgwick County dispatch supervisor said. That’s southwest of Maple and Sycamore, near Lawrence-Dumont Stadium.
Fire crews needed only a few minutes to put out the fire. The Red Cross was called out to assist three adults and one child who lived in the three-bedroom house in the Delano neighborhood.
Lt. Joe Evans said the fire was started by a candle left burning. The blaze caused an estimated $40,000 damage to the house and contents.
