Smoke could be seen from nearly a mile away reported one KC-MO fire company who was enroute after an alarm was sounded at 5:33 pm for a house fire in the 3700 block of Northeast Vivion Road.
The single-story house- as in one shown in the GOOGLE map image- was heavily involved in smoke and fire when the first company arrived at 5:35 pm.
A male occupant escaped uninjured by the fire- but needing EMS attention "for other medical issues."
Two handlines were used on the fire that was brought under control at 5:45 pm..
Busy Vivion Road is closed in either direction at least a block either side of the fire scene near North Cleveland.
