Second House Fire In Salina Wednesday

While still cleaning up at a Wednesday morning house fire, firefighters early in the afternoon were called to another fire.

Salina Fire Marshall Roger Williams tells KSAL News that crews were called at around 2:30 to the report of a house on fire at the corner of West Woodland and North 13th Street. There was heavy smoke and flames when first responders arrived.

Williams says that the fire started on the outside of the home. A mechanic at a shop across the street from the home noticed a chair on fire on the porch. He ran inside the shop to get a fire extinguisher. By the time he got back outside, though, the fire had spread to other furniture that was in the yard, and to the outside of the home.

No one was home at the time, and there were no injuries.

Williams says that investigators are trying to determine exactly how the fire started.
