House Fires in KC-MO South and North

Fire companies in KC-MO- with a little outside help- have been busy this Monday with a couple of damaging house fires...

The first was reported at 8:50 a.m. in the Southland- it was reported as "an electrician" at a residence in the 11300 block of Summit said there was "a fire around the electrical box."

Nearby Pumper 28 arrived 3 minutes later and reported "light smoke" coming from the "1-1/2-story" structure and used a handline on the fire.

The fire was declared under control within 10 minutes- there were no injuries- and an arson investigator was requested.

The next fire was reported in a house in the 7600 block of North Congress at 12:38 p.m.- and a truck from the Southern Platte Fire Protection District was also sent.

Pumper 44 arrived 3 minutes later reporting "smoke showing" from the "1-story" house and pulled a handline to attack the fire.

This fire was also declared under control within 10 minutes of 44's arrival- and again no reported injuries.

Another arson investigator- and the American Red Cross was sent to this scene.
