Man taken into custody after Wichita house fire

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita police have arrested a man found standing in the yard of a burning home.

KWCH-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1xvdsNg ) that police and fire crews responded Tuesday morning to reports of a fire and a disturbance at the Wichita residence.

Firefighters say the fire was contained to the garage, which is considered a total loss. There is smoke damage in the house.

Wichita Police Sgt. Ed Brower says police have taken one person into custody and believe a vehicle possibly crashed into the garage of the house.

Two other people inside the home at the time were able to make it out unharmed.

Neighbors say they noticed the garage burning after hearing someone repeatedly honking a car horn in the driveway of the home that was on fire.
