WICHITA, Kansas – Wichita fire crews responded to two house fires just after noon today.
The first broke out around 12:30 in the 2300 of East Random Road. A neighbor saw flames and called 911. Nobody was home at the time. The house sustained damage throughout the structure and is likely a total loss. A preliminary cause indicates a possible electrical problem.
Then shortly before 1 p.m., firefighters responded to a house fire in the 1600 block of North Waco. No one was home at the time. The fire was limited to the front of the house. A hole was cut into the roof to vent the home. Damage is estimated at $40,000.
