One person was taken to a local hospital after a house fire Thursday morning in north Wichita.
A call for the fire, at a home in the 1300 block of Fairview just south of 13th Street, went out at about 7:40 a.m. Thursday.
Doug Winter, a battalion chief for the Wichita Fire Department, said one occupant of the two-story home, a man, was transported to a local hospital. Winter said he did not think the person transported suffered serious injuries.
“There was a fairly significant fire on the second floor,” Winter said. “We were able to gain control of the fire before it moved to the roof or attic.”
Never miss a local story.
The cause of the fire is under investigation, Winter said.
