Wichita Fire crews battled a fire at a duplex in east Wichita Saturday afternoon.

That fire broke out around 4:30, in the 8700 block of east Lakeland Circle, near Harry and Webb.

Fire officials said when they arrived on the scene, fire and smoke was coming from the duplex. No one was inside at the time, but fire crews did rescue two dogs.

The Red Cross was called to help with six displaced adults total, which includes both sides of the duplex.

The fire caused significant damage near where the garage meets the house. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
