County House Fire Leaves Nothing in Wake

KSAL StaffOctober 29, 2015

The Saline County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a house fire that burnt the home to the ground on the 7900 block of Whitmore, between Salina and Gypsum.

Jimmy Andrew of Salina was caring for the home Tuesday night around 6:00PM, taking care of the property for his son who owns the house. When Andrew came back the next morning at 9:00, the only thing left of the home was the foundation.

The fire dissipated about ten feet around the house, leaving the building in the backyard unharmed.

No neighbors saw the fire, and therefore, the fire department was never contacted. The fire marshal and chief are investigating the property to find the cause of the fire, but at this time, Sheriff Glen Kochanowski reports that no foul play is suspected.

Total loss from the fire totals $115,000.
