Lawrence firefighters are investigating the cause of a fire at 2904 Santa Fe Lane near Holcom Park in south Lawrence.

Seventeen firefighters reported to the scene at 11:32 a.m. Wednesday. Smoke was visible to neighbors, who said it was coming from the back of the house. The fire was extinguished within 30 minutes. No one was inside the rental home at the time of the fire and no injuries were reported.

Lawrence-Douglas County Fire & Medical Division Chief Rich Barr said firefighters do not yet have damage estimates but said he expected the damage wouldn't be significant because the fire was contained to a small portion of the home.
