CSW BREAKING: House Fire in Kansas City KS

Five fire companies of the Kansas City KS Fire department are engaged in a fire-fight in a 1-story structure in the 1100 block of Custer. 

The person that apparently reported the fire stopped and "honked their horn trying to get the attention" of any occupants who may have been inside- according to a KC-KS fire dispatcher.

The alarm sounded at 4:07 a.m.- with the first arriving fire company reporting "heavy smoke showing from a 1-story" house at 04:11 a.m..

The fire chief on-scene ordered all the firefighters "out" of the burning house- and requested a 4th pumper company to protect "exposures" or other structures threatened by the wind-fanned flames.

As of 4:20 a.m.- it's reported the house "is clear of any (unaccounted for) occupants."

By 4:30 a.m.- most of this fire is reportedly "knocked down."

There have been no reports of injuries- firefighter or otherwise- as of this report.
