CSW BREAKING: 2-Alarm Fire in Downtown Lawrence KS

A 2nd-alarm has been sounded for a reported electrical fire in the basement of a building in downtown Lawrence.

The initial alarm was broadcast to Lawrence firefighters at 12:06 p.m. for the fire at 825 Mass.  The 2nd-alarm was issued 4 minutes later.

When the initial call went out- it was reported that "employees nearly (had) the fire out" and first crews arriving didn't report anything showing- so I don't understand the need for the 2nd-alarm.

At 12:19 p.m.- the fire "in the electrical box is under control" with no injuries reported as of this post.
