Wichita Police took seven children in protective custody after a home was found to be in poor living conditions.
An eighth child was hospitalized because of a third-degree burn on her thigh.
Police said SRS officials were originally sent to the 5100 block of East Pawnee to check on a girl who suffered burns earlier this month. The mom failed to take child for a checkup, police said.
The children range in age from 3 to 11 years of age. Police know who the mother is, but there have been no arrests.
