By  | 

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- Firefighters returned to a home in East Topeka on Monday as smoke billowed over a nearby discount store on Monday.

They were called to the home, 2515 SE 6th Street, behind the Dollar General, shortly after 3:00 p.m. and managed to contain the flames to a shed.

Dollar General customers were blocked into the store's parking lot after firefighters hooked up the hose to a hydrant and dragged it across the entrance.

No one was home at the time of the fire. Investigators are still trying to determine how it started.

Firefighters said there were called to the home the day on an illegal burn.
