Three residential fires Tuesday morning in Wichita resulted in one injury and a total of more than $130,000 in damages.

A cooking fire set a duplex on fire before shortly 1 a.m. in the 2500 block of South Webb Road, Fire Department Lt. Kelly Zane said.

One person was taken to the hospital for smoke inhalation. The loss was estimated at $15,000, Zane said.

At 7:45 a.m., an electrical malfunction caused about $28,000 in damages to a residence set up in a detached garage in the 1400 block of South Waco, he said. No injuries were reported.

A little more than an hour later, crews responded to a house fire in the 2800 block of South Linden, Zane said. The fire at the home southwest of Pawnee and Webb was caused by a malfunction in a refrigerator, he added.

No injuries were reported, but Zane said there was an estimated $75,000 damage to the structure and a $15,000 loss in contents.
