A fire in a house in the 600 block of Norton in near-Old Northeast KC-MO spread to a house next door.
The alarm came in at 8:14 a.m. for a fire in a house at 630 Norton. Responding fire crews saw "heavy smoke" when they left their station at Independence Avenue and Van Brunt.
Upon arrival- the first fire companies had a virtually fully-involved house fire at 630- and that fire had spread to the house next door at 628 Norton.
Neither house was occupied at the time of the fire.
The flames at 630 Norton were reported "under control" at 8:26 a.m.- with the fire in the neighboring house quelled by 8:29 a.m.
No injuries have been reported as of this post- with the investigation as to the fire's cause now underway.
