Crews battle house fire in S. Wichita

WICHITA, Kan. Crews with the Wichita Fire Department had to go defensive (fighting from the outside) against a house fire Wednesday night near Gilbert and Broadway in south Wichita. This is a little north of Lincoln and Broadway.

Crews on scene say they believe the home is vacant as there are not any utilities hooked up. Firefighters say they responded to the scene about 8:30 p.m. and flames were visible from the outside.

The fire was intense enough for crews to go defensive.
