WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- An apartment fire in Wichita has left five people injured.

The supervisor says five people were reportedly hurt, and four were taken to a local hospital for treatment. One person declined treatment at the scene.

The dispatch supervisor also says none of the injuries appeared to be critical.
