CSW BREAKING: Independence MO Firefighter Reported Injured at a House Fire

The fire is reported to be in a vacant house at 24th Street and Glenwood in extreme western Independence that was reported about 7:20 a.m..

KSHB-41 NBC Action News (thanx Gary!) reports this is the 3rd fire in vacant Independence houses this morning: the first occurring at 1527 Spring Street about 2:48 a.m. and the 2nd fire around 4 a.m. at 1509 Spring Street.

No injuries were reported in those 2 previous fires.

I'm still awaiting word of the firefighter injury at the Glenwood fire- but since it wasn't an immediate EMS transport leads me to believe that firefighter's injury is not major- certainly not life-threatening.

As I learn more details I'll post them here....
