House fire displaces Wichita family of six, two pets

A house fire has displaced six people and two dogs early Thursday morning in south Wichita, authorities said.

The fire was reported at 5:26 a.m. in the 1700 block of South Erie, a Sedgwick County emergency dispatcher said. That’s southwest of Harry and Hillside.

It took fire crews 22 minutes to extinguish the fire, which damaged the roof, guttering and back of the house. The Red Cross was called out to assist two adults and four children.

No injuries were reported. A cause and damage estimate have not yet been officially released.
