A fire at a rural High Prairie Township home remained under investigation Tuesday, a fire department official said.

The fire was reported at 11:49 a.m. Tuesday. The fire was in a home located across the street from a Leavenworth County Fire District No. 1 station, 25115 187th St.

No injuries were reported.

No one was home at the time the fire was reported. A neighbor called 911 after seeing smoke coming from the house, according to Todd Farley, chief of Leavenworth County Fire District No. 1.

Farley said a crew from the fire station on 187th Street was returning to the station following another call and responded to the fire. Additional firefighters also responded from Fire District No. 1's main station in Lansing.

Firefighters from Fairmount, Alexandria and Tonganoxie townships also responded.

Farley said the fire started in the basement of the home. He believes it had been burning for a while before it was discovered.

Farley said firefighters had the blaze "knocked down" within about 20 minutes. He said firefighters then spent a long time doing what he referred to as overhaul, searching for hidden fires within the home.

Farley said Tuesday afternoon that he did not yet know the cause of the fire.
