Fire in east Emporia under investigation

Emporia firefighters battled an attic fire inside an east Emporia house Tuesday afternoon.

Battalion Chief Steve Kuhlmann says there was smoke evident when fire crews arrived at 1019 Exchange shortly before 3:30 pm.

Kuhlmann says it's unclear whether there was an electrical issue before fire got into the insulation.

Ken Tanner owns the house. Caleb Eccles, the resident, apparently went to the house, noticed smoke and called 911. There were no injuries.
