Garage and home damaged in fire

Around 25 firefighters were called to a fire at a home near Central and 127th Street East just before 6 Tuesday afternoon.

Sedgwick County Fire Division Chief Carl Cox says the fire was contained to an attached garage. 

"They did make an attack on the fire in the attached garage to the home and was able to make a quick knock down and get the fire extinguished," Cox says. 

Cox told KFDI's Penny Kiryk the large number of firefighters on-scene were a back up plan in case the fire extended into the home. 

Firefighters rescued two dogs from the home. 

A damage amount and cause for the fire was not available.
