Fund set for widow of Wichita man killed in fire

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A fund has been set up to help the widow of the 95-year-old Wichita man killed in a recent house fire.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/1cGAnst) that Charlie Adams died in the fire at his home Friday. His wife, 58-year-old Pat Adams, already had left for work as a school bus driver when the fire broke out.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, but Fire Capt. Stuart Bevis says investigators suspect an electrical malfunction sparked the blaze.

Friends say Pat Adams has found a place to live and is receiving help from the Red Cross and her church congregation. But additional help can be provided through the Charlie Adams Memorial Fund, which has been set up at the Capitol Federal Credit Union in Wichita.
