Crews respond to house fire East of Wichita
WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Firefighters from several units made quick work of a fire at a home East of Wichita. Someone in the home in the 15000 block of E. Plymouth Court woke up and smelled smoke. Fire officials at the scene say that person tried to put the fire out with an extinguisher at first.
The fire was contained to the basement of the home, and crews were able to make quick work of it.
At least two adults live in the home and everyone was able to make it out safely.
Crews from Andover, Wichita and Sedgwick County responded to the scene.
There is smoke and fire damage to the basement.
Fire crews say this is a good example of why it’s a good idea to have a fire extinguisher handy, but call 911 even if you think you can put it out yourself.
No word on what caused the fire.
