ctually- it's reported to be a partial collapse of a block-long building in the 3200 block of Forest.

KC-MO Fire sent out the alarm at 11:48 a.m. to that address- when the first company arrived at 11:49 a.m. they reported "the upper floor collapsed" on the 2-story building.

At 11:50 a.m.- that fire crew reported "1" person "trapped." 

A minute later- that same fire crew reported "one fatality" there.

There has been further collapse of the building while fire crew are on-scene- but yet no reports of anyone else trapped or killed in the building.

At 12:45 p.m.- witnesses told a fire chief that there "are homeless (people) living in (the) building."

I'll update right here as needed....
