A northeast Wichita mother says she'll take it one day at a time after losing her home to fire overnight. The fire broke out in a home in the 2600 block of North Spruce just after 11:30 Tuesday night. That home is near 21st & Hillside.
Fire investigators say there was an explosion inside the house, but they're still not sure exactly what caused it. They says there was no indication that natural gas was involved. They are looking at things in the house to see if they could have caused an explosion.
Laveana Comick lived in the home. She tells us she was at work and her children were staying with their grandmother when the fire broke out.
"I do thank God for that," Comick told us. "We all were not home, my kids were at my mom's and I was at work. I do have to thank God for that because that could've been five lives that was lost."
The American Red Cross is helping Comick and her children find a place to stay for the time being.
The fire caused $80,000 in damage to both the house and contents inside. The investigation into the cause continues.
