TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW/AP) -- Topeka fire officials are investigating a second fire at a vacant Topeka house. It also caught fire in June.

Around 9:30 p.m. Monday night fire crews reported seeing smoke and flames coming from 2435 S.E. Minnesota Ave.

Several fire companies quickly got the fire under control, but not before the home sustained heavy damage.

Fire investigators later determined the home was vacant and that the blaze was started by someone inside the kitchen.

Loss is estimated at $5,000.

The Topeka Fire Department is asking anyone with additional information please contact Crime Stoppers at 234-0007.
