Four people were hospitalized Saturday morning when a home caught fire in Olathe, officials said.

Firefighters were called to a house fire at about 8:15 a.m. in the 1000 block of North Clinton Street on Saturday, said Capt. Mike Hall, a spokesman for the Olathe Fire Department.

There, firefighters found “significant fire conditions,” officials said.

The four residents inside the home who were hospitalized — three adults and one teenager — were last known to be in stable condition, Hall said.

As of early Saturday afternoon, Hall said that the cause of the fire was still under investigation. A damage estimate was not yet available, though the home did have “significant damage.”
