No one was injured after a large house fire destroyed a home near Valley Center Thursday night.

Fire crews from Sedgwick County and Valley Center responded around 8 PM to a residence in the 8400 block of North Broadway, near Hartman Arena. When they arrived, they found the house fully engulfed with heavy smoke and flames and the roof had partially collapsed.

Due to the rural location of the home, firefighters had limited access to nearby water making it difficult to put out the blaze.

Authorities say no one was home at the time of the fire. The American Red Cross has been called in to assist the family.

Investigators are still trying to determine what caused the fire. A damage estimate has not been given.
