Wichita fire Lt. Jose Ocadiz said two people were taken to the hospital after a fire on the second floor of their home Wednesday.

Two people were taken to the hospital, one with critical injuries, after a house fire on South Market near East Harry on Wednesday.

Lt. Jose Ocadiz said when firefighters arrived, two occupants were sitting outside the house. They have a combination of injuries from smoke inhalation and burns, he said.

The fire was on the second floor of the house and the first floor was not damaged, he said. A front window above the home’s awning was broken out, and the white siding turned black.

The cause of the fire, which was reported after 11 a.m., is under investigation.
