MANHATTAN, Kan. (WIBW) - Fire crews battled the high temperatures Monday in Manhattan as they fought a structure fire.

Officials were called just after noon to the fire at 2400 Buttonwood Drive.

Heavy smoke and fire was coming from the rear of the home when crews arrived. The home's residents were not there at the time.

The American Red Cross has been contacted to help them.

Due to the heat, more crews were called in so fire fighters could rotate their work.

The cause of the fire is unknown.
