WICHITA, Kan. (KNSS) - One firefighter suffered minor injuries while battling a house fire Monday morning in east Wichita. 

Around 4:15 a.m. fire crews were called to the 400 block of south Poplar, near Kellogg and Grove where they found smoke and flame coming from the rear of as two-story residence.
 
Wichita Fire Chief Ron Blackwell said crews encountered arcing power lines which delayed the beginning of the firefight.  Crews did enter the residence looking for an occupant.  That person had already exited the home.

Fire officials have not released any information on the cause of the fire or given a damage estimate.
