WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Fire investigators estimate $1.25 million in damages after a 2-alarm apartment fire in west Wichita.

The Wichita Fire Department responded to the scene at 4:45 p.m. at the Silver Spring Apartments, 999 N. Silver Spring Blvd., where a fire was started by discarded smoking materials.

All 16 units in one building suffered water damage, displacing all of its residents. The Red Cross provided shelter for those in need.

Fire Investigators say it took a couple of hours to clear the scene, as they had to ventilate smoke gathered in the attic.

No one was injured.
