Lightning likely cause of early morning fire

WICHITA, Kansas – Wichita fire crews are working to figure out whether lightning caused a house fire Thursday.

Firefighters were called to the scene at the 800 block of South Seneca around 2:30 a.m.

It took crews over an hour to get the flames out.

They aren’t sure if lightning was the cause, but the fire did start in the upper floors.
