I missed this one--at least the new shift was on! Busy firefighters last night. The pics of the two old two story railroad flat apartment buildings were amazing.

Also- 2 extra-alarm fires within 5 hours in KC-MO is fairly rare.

Agree- that earlier 2-alarmer off 9th Street and Gladstone/Bellfountaine was wild!

Peace T.O.!
