With help from neighbors, an adult and pets got out of a home that was on fire in eastern Lawrence Tuesday afternoon, according to Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical.
Crews responded to the fire near 15th and Harper streets around 4:40 p.m. Tuesday, McKenzi Ezell, LDCFM data analyst and accreditation manager, said in an email. Crews that arrived reported a working fire in the one-story house.
The fire was contained to an attached garage, and it was under control just after 5 p.m., Ezell said.
The adult and pets had exited the home before LDCFM arrived, Ezell said.
She did not immediately respond to a follow-up email asking whether LDCFM has determined the cause of the fire or whether any damage estimates were available.
