Two-Alarm Apartment Building Fire in Southwestern KC-MO

At least 10 KC-MO fire companies battled a fire in an apartment building in the 11400 block of Holmes early Wednesday morning.

News partner KSHB NBC-41 reports that the fire was reported shortly before 1 a.m.- and a 2nd-alarm had to be called for the incident.

"Extensive fire" was found on the second floor of the 3-story building- a fire official told KSHB- and the flames spread to the 3rd-floor and roof area of the building.

No injuries were reported- but eleven people- nine adults and two children- were displaced by the fire.

Fire officials said the fire caused three-quarters of a million dollars worth of damage to the building and contents.
