CSW BREAKING: Working Structure Fires in Both Kansas Citys

With wind chills in the 20's and actual temperatures in the middle-30's- it's a busy morning for both northeastern KC-KS and east and northeastern KC-MO firefighters Sunday morning...


Just after 3 a.m.- five companies of the KC-KS FD responded to a house fire that could only be described as "in the area of K-5 and 18th St. Trafficway."

At 3:06 a.m.- the first pumper company rolled into the 3000 block of Hutchings and found "heavy fire showing from the rear of a 2-story" structure that had "bars on the windows."

The firefight was on- crews dodged a "hole in the floor on the 1st-floor" among the usual hazards- found "heavy fire in the basement" at 3:21 a.m.- then at 3:38 a.m. all interior firefighters were ordered out of the house and the remaining fire was fought from the outside.

It was determined during the fire that it was an occupied ("vacant") structure.

The fire was not under control but no injuries have been reported as of this post.


At 3:17 a.m.- five companies of the KC-MO FD were dispatched to "a building fire" near the intersection of 12th street and Norton.

Pumper 23 arrived at 3:20 a.m. reporting "smoke and fire showing from the rear of a 2-story" structure in the 1100 block of Norton.

A working fire response added another company as well as other equipment- and at least "2" handlines were in use on the fire.

At 3:27 a.m. the determination was made that this building was "vacant-" and the fire was reported under control at 3:44 a.m.

No injuries were reported- and an arson investigator was requested to the scene.
