WICHITA, Kansas — A fire caused significant damage to an unoccupied home late Sunday night.

It happened just before 10 p.m. in the 2000 block of N. Minnesota.

Crews arrived to find flames and smoke coming from the home. They were able to get the fire knocked down quickly.

They then started searching for anyone trapped inside.

“After a search (we) found that the house was unoccupied,” says WFD Captain Robert Dusenbery. “Apparently there was a family living here moved out a couple of days ago. So there was no one injured.”

Investigators are still searching for the cause of the fire, but they believe it started in a back bedroom.

So far they have not released any estimates on damages.
