CSW BREAKING: KC-MO Fire Units Respond To Aircraft Emergency at K.C.I. Airport

It was sort of a 'slam-bam' affair on the K.C.I. airport emergency call.

The alarm was dispatched at 3:37 p.m. for surrounding structural fire companies- Pumpers 3-4-16 and 44- along with Truck 4 and Chief 103 (108 takes the call later) for an unreported type (believed passenger) plane experiencing an undisclosed problem.

At 3:40 p.m.- that plane lands safely on one of K.C.I.'s north-south runways- and is escorted to "the gate" by airport fire crews.

There's been no reports of anybody hurt- nor any report as to the airline- type of plane- number of souls-on-board nor the problem experienced.

And all the firepeople have went back home.

Severe Thunderstorm Watch No. 551 remains in effect for the entire Metro Kansas City area until 9 p.m.

At the current time- all thunderstorm activity is east of K.C.- as indicated on the weather radar image.
