CSW BREAKING: Three-Alarm Fire at The Milburn Golf Clubhouse in Overland Park

At least 10 fire companies from Overland Park- Merriam- Shawnee and JoCo Fire District 2 are battling a 2-alarm fire at the Milburn Golf course clubhouse at 7501 West 69th Street in northern Overland Park KS..

The initial alarm sounded around 4:22 p.m. and a 2nd-alarm was sounded about 20 minutes later.

It took about 25 minutes to get sufficient water on the fire itself.

Fire has burned through the roof of the large clubhouse fanned by strong northwest winds and threatens the rest of the clubhouse which was originally built in 1917 and has been added onto through the years.

So far- no inuries reported and withing the past 20 minutes- no additional fire companies have been sent to the scene.

At 6:06 p.m.- a 3rd-alarm response has been requested and 2 minutes later 4 more fire companies were sent to the scene of this fire which has spread beyond the simulated flames in the image depicted here.

In addition- sightseers converging in the area possibly have contributed to an injury crash less than a block from the fire scene.

O.P. police are urging people to stay away from the area.

More as/if received....
