TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - A fire at a Topeka home Thursday afternoon is believed to be intentionally set.

Crews were called just after 2:00 p.m. to 1160 Southwest Lane. Topeka Batallion Chief Mike Thompson says a man who had an interest in renting the home from a Craigs List ad discovered the fire.

Thompson says the fire began along the interior stairwell of the home, which was vacant. No injuries were reported.
