WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Firefighters in Wichita believe a car in a driveway caused a fire that damaged two homes.

KAKE-TV (http://bit.ly/144aIMF ) reports that the fire broke out around 1:15 a.m. Friday on a street near West Shopping Center. Five people were inside the home with the most damage, but a mother was able to get everyone out safely.

Fire Capt. Derek Pierce says the car had been recently repaired. It apparently caught fire and the blaze eventually engulfed both homes.

Damage to the second home was apparently limited to melted siding.

An investigation continues.
