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.”
The cause of the fire is under investigation, Winter said.
