Crews fight another fire at old Joyland

WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) A fire at the old Joyland Amusement Park is now under control.

Wichita firefighters were initially called out to a fire at Sowers Alternative High School around 4:30 p.m. Smoke could been seen blowing across I-135.

Crews soon learned the fire was on the Joyland property and cut a fence to get to a metal building where the fire was located.

High winds spread the fire to the grass and additional crews were called in to help fight the flames.

Crews fought the fire from outside the building because they believed it might collapse due to the damage.

Firefighters say they have developed numerous access points on the Joyland property from fighting multiple fires there.

The cause of the fire has yet to be determined. No one was hurt.
