A house fire damaged a home in west Wichita, displacing eight people.

It happened around 7:15 p.m. Monday night in the 700 block of north Custer, near Central and Zoo Blvd.

Acting Wichita Battalion Chief Terry Gresham says because the fire started in the basement, fighting this fire was a bit more challenging.  "We have to make sure where we're going is safe," Gresham says.  

There were no injuries.  The Red Cross is assisting the displaced residents.  The cause of the fire and a damage estimate was not immediately available.
