TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – The Topeka Fire Department responded to a morning structure fire at an apartment in southwest Topeka at 5:33.

Firefighters evacuated residents out of the Fairlawn Green Apartments just west of SW 20th and Fairlawn.

TFD says fire suppression crews have the fire under control at this time but anticipate being on the scene for some time to deal with hot spots.

The cause of the fire is still unknown.

Two residents were treated on scene for smoke inhalation but were not transported to the hospital. A firefighter received minor burns but was also not transported to the hospital.

We will have more on this developing story tonight on KSNT News at 5 & 6.
