Topeka fire crews fight shed, tree fire in SW Topeka

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - The Topeka fire department responded to a fire near 10th and Kent Pl. Saturday night.

Shawnee Count dispatchers say tree and a shed caught fire, but could not yet give a cause.

High winds made it difficult for crews to put out all the embers from the tree, but the Topeka Fire Department was eventually able to contain the fire.
