Virtually all on-duty fire companies of the Central Jackson County Fire Protection District (CJCFD) were called out to battle a duplex fire in Blue Springs MO early Sunday morning.
The action all started with the 1:31 a.m. dispatch of four CJCFD units to the structure in the 1100 block of Northwest 6th Street.
A Blue Springs police officer who was also dispatched on the call was the first to arrive at 1:34 a.m. and he saw "heavy fire" coming from the "garage area" of one side of the duplex.
The fire spread throughout the one side of the unit- then into the attic area shared by both- and at least two additional CJCFD engines (pumpers) were called into the fire.
Fire crews from the Fort Osage and Sni Valley departments filled-in at empty CJCFD stations during the fire- which was declared under control at 2:35 a.m..
No firefighter or other injuries have been reported as of this post- and an investigation into the cause of the fire is underway.
