Firefighters needed less than half an hour to put out a house fire in northeast Wichita this morning.
The fire, at 4140 E. Regent, near Oliver and 17th, was called in at 9:35 a.m. Firefighters were met with smoke and flames, a dispatch supervisor said.
Traffic was blocked in the area as firefighters work to contain the fire. Officers blocking traffic were called to the front yard of the residence to intervene between two people arguing intensely, the dispatch supervisor said.
The two people lived at the burning residence, she said, and may have been fighting over how the fire started.
The fire was declared out at 10:02 a.m. A cause or damage estimate has not been released.
