Topeka Home Fully Engulfed In Flames

Crews were on the scene for hours on a fully engulfed house fire that broke out early Tuesday morning in Topeka.

Authorities received the call just after three a.m. that a structure fire had broke out in a two story home on 108 North West Western.

When firefighters arrived to the scene the house was fully engulfed.

The fire was so massive it could be seen from I-70.

Low water pressure made it difficult for crews to put the flames out quickly.

The blaze scorched neighboring houses on both sides.

Firefighters were able to get the fire under control around four thirty a.m.

Everyone inside the home was able to make it out safely with no injuries.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
