Overnight News - Saturday, 02 December 2006


At 6:19am- Independence, MO ambulance service AMR-EMS went on a call for unknown medical reasons of "a man down" at 19th street and Cedar. About 10 minutes later- AMR reported that person was dead-on-arrival.
The reason for the man's death was being investigated.


Leavenworth, KS police and the Kansas Highway Patrol are investigating an incident that was dispatched at 2:21am as a "pedestrian hit." The incident reportedly occurred at "Broadway and Pottawatomie" in Leavenworth.
Very serious injuries were indicated by LPD officers on that scene.


House fires in both Kansas Cities caused significant damage - but no injuries.

First was a fire in a vacant house at 4:38am in the 5900 block of East 14th Street in KC MO. Two handlines were used to bring the blaze under control at 4:48am.
The origin of the fire was suspicious - and under investigation.

The second incident was in a lived-in house in the 1700 block of North 43rd Street in KC KS at 5:06am. An unknown-number of occupants escaped the home before the first fire company arrived three minutes later. At 5:30am- the on-scene district chief pulled all crews from the structure for fear of a floor collapse into the basement. It was 5:41am before this fire was knocked down.
Origin of this fire was in the basement - unoffically from a defective or improperly-used kerosene heater.


Overnight weather was mostly cloudy with a temperature that fell only 2 degrees from midnight's 23-degree reading. Light southwesterly winds still took the wind chill into the lower-teens over the 8-inch snowpack here in KC MO's Loma Vista area.
